Location

Truly one of the best parts about this ryokan is its location. It’s located strategically so that you can both sense and see the Mt. Fuji view from multiple angles. Even when the weather is cloudy, the majestic presence of the iconic mountain can be felt throughout the property. Fufu Kawaguchiko is also located near Kawaguchi Lake, so guests have plenty of sightseeing opportunities when they stay here.

This ryokan has somehow mastered the art of having incredible views while also being quite secluded. Because it’s located deep within a valley, there is that sense of privacy and secrecy that guests really enjoy since it makes their vacations more peaceful. But even with such a “hidden” location, spectacular views of Mt. Fuji can still be seen everywhere.

Fufu Kawaguchiko is truly a scenic paradise that will win the hearts of anyone who stays here. We guarantee you’ll never get tired of that view!
