Kawaguchi Lake (Kawaguchiko) Onsen Area
Located along the shores of Kawaguchi Lake (Kawaguchiko), numerous guesthouses and hotels afford guests outstanding views of Mount Fuji. Many have their own in-house ‘onsen’ (hot springs), including both indoor and outdoor baths; the latter of which also often provide fantastic views of the mountain.
Soaking in a hot spring while enjoying the view of Mount Fuji is without ‘the’ Japanese experience. Kawaguchiko is large with accommodation spread-out along its shores and covering a large area. Given the popularity of the area with both Japanese and international visitors, prices can be high but well-worth it just for the experience of staying in the shadow of Fuji.
