Ubuya


If you are looking for luxury onsen ryokans with Mt.Fuji views, I think you should stay at Ubuya.  You can get much of an immersive “Mt.Fuji View” experience in good weather as you expect.  Perhaps, if this is your first time staying at ryokans, I would highly recommend it.  Most of the Japanese-style rooms have twin beds.  The property would be great for couples, families, small groups, or solo travelers.  Also, this is child friendly.  Staff can provide samue outfits, meals, and amenities for children if you request in advance.  The ambiance is elegant, lively, and charming.   There are many tour groups from overseas and all over Japan.  If you are going to stay here, I would highly recommend booking a room with a private outdoor bath on a terrace.  This is not a hot spring but it’s worth it.  You can view a dynamic Mt.Fuji while soaking in the bath.  That’s precious time.  You can adjust the water temperature.  Furniture, interior, and decorations tend to be modern.  Facilities tend to be a bit worn out, though.  Then all of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, yukatas, samue outfits, welcome sweets, bottled water, and a green tea set, etc.  The free WiFi reception was excellent in the property.  Room service is not available.  There is a convenience store nearby.  There is a vending machine for drinks in-house.  Then you can chillax to the max at the lounge on 2F while viewing a superb Mt.Fuji.  Complimentary coffee, English tea, herb tea, and orange juice, etc., are available.  Then Ubuya is a universal design.  There are some rooms for wheelchair users.  Wheelchairs are available for borrowing.  If you bring people with weak feet, you may want to inform the staff in advance as they can arrange a room near the lift.  Then there are wonderful large indoor and outdoor communal hot springs in-house.  You can enjoy the baths while viewing an amazing Mt.Fuji.   The spring quality wouldn’t be special, though.  All of them are open from 5:00-10:00, 15:00-24:00.  There is no private family hot spring in-house.  *If you have tattoos, you may not be permitted to use the communal bathing area.  Then the food experience for dinner was wonderful, especially the Sukiyaki beef course.  You can choose either the Japanese kaiseki or shabu-shabu course for dinner.  The portion tends to be big.  Don’t forget to bring your empty stomach.  Dinner starts from 18:00, 18:50 or 19:30.  Breakfast starts from 7:30, 8:00, or 8:30.  Then we could choose western or Japanese cuisine for breakfast before, but only Japanese cuisine was offered when we stayed in 2017.  All meals are served in a private room.  *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 restaurants around the property.  Local papa mama shops are closing early.  You may want to book a room including meals.  Then all staff tends to be courteous, helpful, and attentive, but it seems that service tends to be patchy during the busy season.  They looked so busy.  The property is one of the popular around there.  If you want to chill out here in a tranquil atmosphere, you might want to avoid staying during Lunar New Year, late April to early May, mid-autumn festival, weekends in Nov and the end of the year and New Year holiday.  The property would be very busy during the above periods more than you expect.  Anyway, the best season to stay here would be in fall and winter.  Because there is a high possibility that you can see Mt.Fuji more clearly.  At last, don’t forget to check a weather forecast before booking a room.  That’s the most important.  Free shuttle service is available from Kawaguchiko Station from 15:00-18:00.  You need to book it in advance.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about Ubuya 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   If you check-in after 18:00, you need to inform staff in advance.  Check Availability and Pricing for Ubuya on Agoda
