Toki no Sumika Gotemba Resort: “A Tunnel of Light to Mt Fuji!”

  • If you’re looking for a place to stay near Mount Fuji, Toki No Sumika is the perfect place! I stayed here once with my parents and my grandmother for Christmas and we had a wonderful time.

    The hotel room was wonderful and the view of Mount Fuji was great as well. The night time illuminations made for an amazing view. Toki No Sumika consists of seven different places to stay, a spa and relaxation area, eight restaurants, four shops, and a whole lot of activities to do around the area. Toki no Sumika is also popular for its beautiful illuminations tunnel.


    I stayed at the Gotemba Kogen Hotel but within Toki No Sumika but there are also many other options to choose from.

    There are also different types of lodges, villas, and teepees that are available to stay in.

    Hot Springs & Spas

    There are four hot springs and four spa areas that are available at Toki No Sumika.

There is a natural hot spring theme park, Kirakubou, an outdoor hot spring, Chameyudono, an apple hot spring that is within the Slow Villa area, and finally Yuzu-no-yu which is a citrus bath located inside Gotenba Kogen Hotel and Hotel Brush Up.
