after looking through photo galleries of various hotels in the area, the view from the rooms of this hotel was the reason why i'd chosen it (although it's on the high-end in terms of price), and the view hadn't dissappointed me at all. just got to blame my bad luck that mount fuji was being covered-up by clouds and mist during most of the time, but at last before i checked out, i still got about 30 mins of sunshine with mount fuji right in front of my eyes when i looked through the windows.
the onsen was also impressive. it's very well equipped on the ladies side, with lotions, moisturizers , etc there in front of a quite spacious changing area.
the service was great. the lady serving my room was friendly and had explained to us each dish and also chatted with us about the hotel, the kawaguchiko area, and even things happening in japan.
after dinner, housekeepers had come into our room to make beds for us. they left us some little dried lavender, asked us to put beside our pillows for good and relaxing sleep. that's just some little things but was sweet.
dinner was great, but that buffet breakfast was even more remarkable to me. some sashimi for breakfast was luxurious, but their とろろ昆布 was surprisingly delicious!
overall, the whole experience was very enjoyable. although it's towards the expensive end to me, it's worthwhile.
