The hotel is somewhat remote and not easy to find without a rental car with appropriate GPS. However, from the breakfast room you can enjoy a direct and very impressive view of Mount Fuji-san. Many years ago, the hotel was built very solid and massive and architecturally quite interesting. Today, however, it is no longer up to the usual standard. The facilities and food are geared towards the Asian group market and to that extent less suitable also because of the lack of American or Continental breakfast for most Western visitors. An example of this, we needed a knife for the butter at breakfast, we were politely told that they do not carry knives in the hotel, but we were offered coffee spoons with which we could spread the butter on the toast. The cleanliness for which Japan is so highly valued is unfortunately clearly missing here in several places. Based on what we saw, the facility probably belongs to a foreign Asian company, because we could not see Japanese employees. The little visible staff, one person spoke good English, were probably new to the industry and not necessarily familiar with the job, but all were quite friendly and helpful.The tatami room we occupied was spacious, very conveniently divided into living, sleeping and bathing areas separately and very quiet.
