We stayed here for a wedding anniversary and it was amazing. It was a fun adventure to get to the township from Tokyo via train. From the moment we arrived at the ryokan we were specially cared for - welcome tea on arrival, our beautiful,...More
Amazing hotel. Beautiful and with a wonderful view. Great Onsen. The staff is the epitome of perfection when it comes to customer service.
The only negative I could say is the influx of mainland Chinese guests..... For a posh hotel, it was hard to enjoy...More
A room & onsen with a view of Fuji-San! We (4 pax family) had stayed at Kozantei Ubuya during our roadtrip. Big, clean room with Fuji-San right in front of us. Superb dinner & breakfast as well as the service. Luckily on that night after...More

We stayed here because the other place we had booked (Konansou) was booked for the second night we wanted. We stayed here before Konansou not really expecting much. Our highlight was going to be Konansou. But this has faired a million times better. We had...More

You can stay in the ryokan for sure. Tattoos are to be aware in the public bath areas only. In order not to disturb other guests in the public bath, you can cover your tattos and normally they will not refuse you to enjoy the public hot springs. This is how my daughter did with her tatoos (covered with large paper surgical tapes) and she has never been refused in any public baths in Japan. This ryokan also has private hot spring in some of the rooms with gorgeous views.

Hi there ....from Tokyo Shinjuku you need to take the JR line (covered by JR pass if applicable for you) to Otsuki and change to private line FUJISAN VIEW EXPRESS 5 (not covered by JR pass but minimal fee). The FUJISAN VIEW EXPRESS 5 takes you directly to Kawaguchiko which is the final station where your train journey to Kozantai Ubuya hotel ends. If I remember correctly from my trip back in May; there are two type of trains ...express and local...we took the local train (stopping at many villages which we actually liked) wich took about 1 hour whereby the express takes about 40 minutes. Kawaguchiko is a very small Station and the hotel transfer vans/cars are easy to be found outside and you can gomtomthe Info tourism counter and they even call the hotel for you. However....!!!.....You must be careful about your arrival time at Kawaguchiko station as the hotel only provides certain pick time times which I do not remember. FYI we arrived outside their free shuttle time so we took a taxi at the station and it took only 10 minutes to get to the hotel and we paid little. The hotel is not far from the station but cannot walk. On our departure we used the free hotel shuttle.
Enjoy the nice views of Mount Fuji ...specially early morning! Wishing you a nice stay and cloud free days!
