Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great place great room! Nice view of Fuji from our room. Food was good. We had so much for dinner that we had to rest for an hour before going onsen again. We were well taken care of by the staff! Most of them are unable to speak English but there is a particular lady who can and we conversed with her most of the time! All in all, great value!

富士河口湖溫泉酒店 湖風の宿 あさふじ Asafuji Hotel是一家很好的溫泉旅館,在入住前已經會電腦聯絡你需要什麼作提前準備,不論你是日本人或遊客,他們都會真誠地款待你。

他有熱情的職員,每位都懂流利英語,包括有些長者職員,他們接送服務很好,有幾架接送顧客的商旅車,讓你可以有彈性時間出行,他們願意送你去附近的景點,亦可以隨時接你回酒店,是一間有超過5星級管家服務的溫泉旅館。

他們的房間很舒適,可以看到富士山及河口湖,有獨立淋浴間及洗手間,你也可以到溫泉風呂淋浴。

展望溫泉風呂是男女分開的,他們沒有私人風呂,展望溫泉女室可以清晰看到富士山,風景非常開闊,男浴場亦同樣可以看到富士山,十分寫意。

房間已包早餐及晚餐,食物非常美味及新鮮。

整體來說,服務5星以上,環境、食物都很好,位置近車站及景點,重點性價比高,價錢相宜十分推薦入住。

We had a great stay in Asafuji Hotel, we are happy with their good service , smiling facing , very helpful and the delicious dinner.

The room with a great view of Mt. Fuji and Kawaguchiko lake. The hotspring bath is also very good and make you feel relax.

Their service from the true heat is much better than the other hotels so called 4star 5star hotspring hotels.

The room price is reasonable and the dinner and breakfast are very good and well prepared.

I would recommend my friends to visit them.

Well done Asafuji Hotel team.

The photos staff have uploaded do not do this place justice - it is more beautiful than it is in photos.
I travelled alone. I had an excellent view of the river, and when craning my head I could see Mt Fuji.
The staff go above and beyond to make you feel welcome and do their best to help you relax the best you can.

Yes this place is quite expensive - the most expensive place I stayed at long my trip. I did stay at other traditional Japanese-style inns/ryokan along my trip, and though they were equally the same and much cheaper - the price is increased here as you are most definitely paying for the view.

I recommend waking up for sunrise - you're so close to the mountain and the lake you are almost obliged to - it was more beautiful than the sunset (as long as the mountain is not too cloudy).

My room had it's own private bath-tub which was a nice treat, in addition to the shared bath they have. The shared bath had lots of good quality skin products - I ended up buying some.

Staff offer complimentary pick up and drop off from kawaguchiko station.

I came from Tokyo, Shibuya --> Ootsuki (by shinkansen) then transferred to the Fuji express train (lovely train with great interior) which then took me to kawaguchiko.

My only regret is not having booked 2 nights! I only stayed 1 night, though feel 2 nights would have been just the right amount of time - I personally would not have needed more time as the town itself is quite small and there is not much to do around.

When me and my boyfriend planed our trip we only had one night and one morning in Fuji before our next stop. We wanted to stay at a ryokan and we knew it was going to be expensive. But having that experience is worth every penny. We contact the hotel and they picked us and another family up from the station in a van. They drove us to the hotel and showed us to our room. Unsure about the bathroom situation, we decided to pay a little extra to insure we had our own private bathroom and shower. We were told to take off our shoes when we arrived to our room. Our host poured us tea and we enjoyed our view of Mt. Fuji from our window. We had an 8pm dinner so we went to our gender onsens. The women's has the corner view so you can an even better view of Mt. Fuji ( totally worth it ). I found myself most of the time alone in the onsen and nudity was not an issue. I will say that please follow onsen rules. Clean your body with soap from head to toe.

When it came to dinner, all you have to do is go downstairs. my boyfriend and I changed into the robes provided in the room. ( I think we were the only ones wearing it but I didn't care because it was comfortable! ) You must be open minded and to trying all the different foods. This meal is served as a traditional Japanese meal. At first you think the portion size is small, but once everything comes out, you realize it's a big meal!

When you are done and go back to your room, you will find it transformed into your bed! It really was an amazing night. But don't worry, you get one more meal in the morning and it's just as amazing as your dinner from the night before. If you ask, they will drive you back to the train station too.

The owners are so wonderful and everyone tries their best to speak English. But being knowing a few words in Japanese is always a good idea.

In th lobby they had birds and little animals. I enjoyed them. They have vending machines as well in case you want a snack.

Me and my boyfriend made it a point to wake up 5:30am to walk outside by the lake and take pictures of Fuji. Because of the seasons, we didn't know if it was going to be cloudy later in the day, making it difficult to see Mt. Fuji. We got some awesome pictures.

This hotel is at a great location and for the experience of a life time, worth the money. We are already planning on coming back to Japan sometime in the next few years and we are defiantly going to be coming back to Asafuji !

We stayed at Asafuji recently and absolutely loved our stay and the experience. The staff were so accommodating and walked us through the Ryokan etiquette, much of which we were unfamiliar with and had to madly google beforehand.

The rooms are traditional style with modern bathrooms and I think all of them have a view of Mount Fuji, weather permitting. There is an onsen on the top floor (4th floor) which also overlooks the mountain and is divided by gender. Brush up on your Japanese characters prior to entering though as there are no English directions and my partner nearly headed for the female onsen. The females were the furthest from the elevator.

Breakfast and dinner is included with the accommodation, however dinner is huge so ensure you have a light lunch. As per tradition, you are required to wear a Yukata for meals. Make sure you wrap the right side of the Yukata around your body first and then the left, as vice versa is reserved for the dead.

Staff will email you before hand requesting details of your arrival as they will come and pick you up from the station and will also drop you off on departure. It was the only hotel we stayed in in Japan that actually allowed us to check in early. They apologised for their English skills in advance, however we found their skills to be quite good in terms of general communication.

The hotel has wifi, is in a good location and is directly in front of the tourist bus stop. It only takes 15 minutes to walk to the restaurants and tourist shops or 30 mins to walk to the station.

I can’t stress enough how lovely all the staff were, great place to stay and great experience.

Asafuji is located right on Lake Kawaguchi. From check-in to check-out, everything is smooth and well taken care of. Staff are super helpful and friendly. Room size is decent enough for 3 occupants. They offer pick-up service from the station. We ordered the dinner and breakfast (highly recommended to order both service) and they didn't disappoint. Being near the lake, it's really quiet at night, so it's great if you'd like to walk around the lake, however there's no supermarket nearby.

Mt Fuji can be seen on through the left side of the window.. better view of Mt Fuji can be seen from the lake

Hotel is small (13rooms) and thereby quite cosy. Staff is friendly and helpful. The Onsen is on the 4th floor and you should go as it has a nice view of Mt Fuji, especially during sunset. Food is above average. The one setback we had was a bad odor which we together with the Hotel trace it to their trap in the bathroom. Smell was unpleasant through they tried had to eradicate it. I was in room 306.

We stayed here for a night when hoping to see Mount Fuji. Unfortunately due to the weather we were not able to see Fuji but this did not spoil our trip because our stay at the hotel was fantastic. We booked a traditional Japanese style room with the tatami mats. All the rooms look out on to the lake and have beautiful views. We had Japanese tea in our room when we arrived with small cakes. We then used the Japanese baths (onsen). There is a separate one for men and women (the men's one is the first one!) these were quite small but nice and clean with lovely toiletries provided. You do need to get naked no costumes allowed unlike in the UK. This was a nice experience and again the pool has nice views out to the lake and Fuji on a clear day. The staff speak very little English although this did not affect us as my husband speaks Japanese but they did email us to let us know this. Dinner was in the hotel and we wore our Ukatas down for dinner. The food was fantastic and there was a lot of it. Breakfast was typically Japanese and involved more fish. This was a bit rich for me but was a nice experience. The staff were lovely and very friendly. My only criticism is that the meals felt very rushed. All in all a great hotel which was quite reasonably priced if you want an authentic experience of Japan with lovely views.
