It is expensive. The only reason one would want to stay here is to gamble on the chance that the sky is clear and one can see Mt. Fuji from the onsen in the room. We got lucky and had two clear days with a great view of Mt. Fuji while we were in the onsen. It was worth it. The hotel itself is getting old, the internet does not work, but service is still great. It is nicely decorated with a nice garden around the hotel with a great view of Mt. Fuji. Of course there is also a public onsen where one can see Mt. Fuji on a clear day. We wore the yukata and haori (Japanese loungewear) to have the Shabu-shabu supper in the restaurant and it was fabulous. There were some very unique dishes and was quite an experience. Breakfast however was a little disappointing with limited selections. One thing to watch out for is getting back to the hotel at the end of the day. The ropeway stop running after 4 to 5 pm depending on the season and the cable-car stops running at around 7. After 8 pm, public bus service is only once an hour. So one really need to plan ahead so to where to go if you do not want to rack up more expensive taxi fare. The walk from the ropeway to the hotel using back alley is 2-3 minutes and about 4 minute from the bus stop via the main road.
