Stayed in nice refurbished room. Great views of Fuji San. Staff were extremely friendly and spoke good English. All amenities were bilingual etc. We paid extra for teppanyki dinner and it was excellent. Well worth doing. Chef chatty and skillful. Wine list limited but good. Overly expensive though but do allow BYO for a reasonable corkage fee.

Good location of the resort with magnificent view facing the Mountain Fuji & Lake kawaguchi. The public bath located at the top floor facing the Mountain Fuji impressed me a lot. One comment is that the electricity of our room is off when we returned to the hotel during daytime. It may be inconvenient for travelers. However, it's an awesome... More

Staying in Kukuna was a pleasant experience. The room was spacious with a fusion of western as well as Japanese style. I myself prefer to sleep in bed rather than "tatami" but at the same time I could still sit on the "tatami" for a cup of hot tea and Japanese snacks if I want. There was a balcony in... More

The private spa is amazingly great. The view of Mt. Fuji is gorgeous. You can see Mt. Fuji from the hotel room and from hot spring. The staff are cheerful and helpful. Had a memorable and enjoyable stay in Kukuna.

Hotel is situated on the north shore, so it makes an awesome view of the lake and Fujisan in the same direction. They have got free snacks and drinks all day. Kaiseki dinner set was awesome in a private room. Breakfast... More

The hotel and staff are really accomodating. Watching the sunrise looking out across a lake with Fuji in the background from the warmth of a hot spring pool has to be one of the most serene experiences. The food was quite good and the hotel room and common areas well equipped.

I have stayed five hotels during this trip, this was the most expensive one and the best one. It left me with great memories. The whole building is new and well maintained. The hotel offered lots of amenities, even the facial mask. I would recommend to everyone who plans to go Kawaguchiko area.

“Best views of Mount Fuji”
  • The first day of arrival was a cloudy day so Mount Fuji was blocked by the clouds
