“A perfect retreat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2012

From the moment my family was picked up at the cute little railway station to the time we had to say our goodbyes, our stay at Onsenji Yumedono (pronounced "you-may-don-o") Ryokan was an unforgettably enjoyable one. I tell all my friends, "you may know it, or you may don't know it, but Yumedono is the best!" We were blessed to be able to book the Annex Shikibu, which is set apart from the other rooms and is exquisitely furnished. Comfort, privacy, bliss... the private hot spring was so relaxing! And the food - in terms of quality, quantity, preparation and presentation - will leave you speechless. Worth more than every dollar we paid. We'll be back!

Room Tip: For families with small children, the Annex Shikibu is best - there is a private garden for the chil...

To begin with the staff were so friendly and helpful as they picked us up from the train station and then dropped us back on our way home. they were there late at night when we arrived and spoke enough english. sleeping on the floor was not something we were used to but we were able to layer them up and it was quite pleasant. the onsen was the first i had ever experienced and i was fortunate that i had it all to myself - must experience this it was fantastic. overall a wonderful experience. also you should try the indian restaurant up the road, best curry i have ever had! taking the cable car up the mt opposite mt fuji is a must! there is also a really cute cookie shop at the bottom which smells amazing and they are really good to bring back as gifts. if you get a chance take to retro bus round the lake and visit the ice caves.

Each Yumedono room has its own garden with onsen that you can jump in anytime you want, be it late at night or right after you wake up. A clean room filled with tatami mats gives you a truly classical Japanese experience. Meals are served in your room where you can enjoy complete privacy once you check in.

I recommend to visit this ryokan in winter to get the most of this very classical onsen accomodation. Imagine how fantastic it would be to enjoy a truly authentic hot onsen when snow is falling onto it. Don't forget to book a room of Japanese style in Yumedono.

Very costly but you get what you pay for.

We stayed in a Japanese room at Hotel Yumedono. Service was spectacular despite the language barrier. Nevertheless, the staff at Yumedono were extremely helpful as they tried their best to communicate with us in bits and pieces of English. The whole ambiance was quite and peaceful. Although we were there on a cloudy day and could not see Mt. Fuji, I would still recommend it for anyone looking for a nice, quite, and restful stay. The Japanese room in Hotel Yumedono had its own private onsen. The room was very nice and very clean. I would totally recommend this for people! Also just as a suggestion that may help smooth over your stay at Yumedono: contact the hotel before your stay to introduce yourself. I contacted them because I was worried about the language barrier but they responded in English and were very helpful and cooperative!

Room Tip: Be sure to visit the hotel's website (it is in English) to get a better sense of the rooms becau...

We stayed here first time and this has gave us a most memorable stay experience. Hotel management is very kind to pick first from the JR upon arrival and he also sent us to the JR when departure under his compliment. Indeed a good experience staying in a traditional japanese room "Sakura", making up the futon bed by ourself and used the Onsenji facilitlies in the Spring. Thus, we are unable to enjoy the full view of Mt Fuji. But we have a wonderful time in this trip.

The price may jump out at you but let me tell you this is an exclusive place with impeccable service. We stayed for 2 nights over Xmas Eve and Xmas in 2011. The room just wows you with its typical Japanese ryokan beauty while the private onsen under the red umbrella is soothing and totally cool especially in winter. The "obasan" was so attentive even warming our boots when we left our rooms and trying her best in her limited English to explain the delicacies we were eating. The kaiseki dinner has to be the highlight of the stay at Yumedono. We tried Fugu (puffer fish) shabu shabu, King Crab and Wagyu Ox Tongue Stew as part of the 1st night dinner. This was washed down with a 50 year old Japanese wine and a delectable almond pudding with fresh fruit. The next dinner included Hiroshima oyster, good sashimi followed by the highlight a hot plate Wagyu steak and Scallop and Kani rice. This place is totally amazing and u must stay for the whole experience of pampering and exclusivity indulgence. You will never forget it....!!!

Room Tip: None the exclusive 6 rooms only and all are fantastic...!

My wife and I booked this Onsen based on the reviews on Tripadvisor and I must say that I is one of the best experiences I have had in Japan. Onsenji is NOT a huge commercial complex and we stayed in one of the suites which came with our private onsen pool. The staff is amazingly helpful and the food is simply excellent! Both dinner and breakfast are award winners! Kawaguchiko lake area is beautiful and I wouold advise anyone coming to saty here to arrive early to tour the area before heading to check in around 3pm.

Room Tip: Any of the 6 suites are fine.
