Fuji Onsenji Yumedono Ryokan

If you are looking for luxury rooms with private hot springs near Mt.Fuji, I think you should stay at Fuji Onsenji Yumedono.  Each room has a wonderful private hot spring.  Perhaps if this is your first time staying at ryokans, I would highly recommend it.  Facilities tend to be the latest.  Most of the rooms have twin beds.  You wouldn’t feel any stress during your stay.  On the other hand, if you are looking for rooms with amazing views of Mt.Fuji, this is not.  The location is near Mt.Fuji, but there is no view from the property.   Then this is a small ryokan.  There are 9 rooms only.  We never met other guests even though the property was fully booked.  Absolutely the ryokan completely emphasizes private experiences for each guest.  The ambiance is charming, quaint, and serene.  The property would be great for couples, families, or small groups.  *Currently they don’t accept solo travelers.  Once we entered the property, immediately staff escorted us to a beautiful tatami room.  Then we checked in and out at our room while having match tea.  If you are going to stay here, I would highly recommend booking an executive Japanese Suite.  Everything, such as interior, furniture, and architecture, etc., is truly incomparable.  This is a spectacular place to stay with attention to every detail.  It’s worth a visit.  We felt the luxury and authenticity at once.  The room is spacious, user-friendly, and comfortable.  You can chill out here while viewing a well-kept traditional garden.  We spent a lot of time jumping in and out of our private one.  All of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, pajamas, yukatas, samue outfits, and a green tea set, etc.  Room service is not available.  There is a vending machine for soft drinks in-house.  DVD players, humidifiers, and bicycles are available for borrowing if you request.  Unluckily, there is no communal hot spring, no lounge, and no library to relax in-house.  That’s too bad.  Then you should go cycling around Kawaguchiko Lake while viewing a beautiful Mt.Fuji in good weather.  Free Wifi reception was sometimes slow in our room.  There is no convenience store nearby.  You may want to buy your necessities before coming here.  Then the property is not a universal design, but there are few steps in-house.  Once you enter your room, you wouldn’t need to move around during your stay.  If you bring people with weak feet, you may want to inform the staff in advance as they can arrange a room near the entrance.  Then kaiseki food experience for dinner and breakfast was wonderful.  The portion tends to be big.  All meals are served in your room.  Breakfast starts from 8:00-8:30.  Dinner starts from 18:00-18:00.  If you have dinner on the property you need to check in by 17:00.  *Please note that inform the staff when you book a room with meals if you have any food allergies.   They probably wouldn’t be able to prepare alternative food if you request on that day.  Then, as far as I know, there wouldn’t be nice restaurants around the property.  Local papa-mama shops are closing early.  You may want to book a room including meals.  Then the staff tends to be patchy.  If you expect a 5-star hotel service, this is not.  The hardware is outstanding but the software, personnel, and service are not of the same class and still have a long way to go.  Overall, the price range would be reasonable.  If you want to get much of an immersive “small onsen ryokan” experience as you expect, Fuji Onsenji Yumedono Ryokan would be perfect.   The location is near Kawaguchiko Station.  It takes 5min by car.  A free shuttle service is available from the station.  You need to book it in advance.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about Fuji Onsenji Yumedono Ryokan from the below space.   *All information is as of the date that I posted on my blog  ***Check-in and out times 15:00/11:00   You need to inform staff of your expected arrival time in advance.  Guests are required to show a photo ID and credit card upon check-in.  Check Availability and Pricing for Fuji Onsenji Yumedono on Booking.com or Agoda
