A hotel room is more than just a place to sleep, it can have a big impact on your holiday experience. One huge bonus with a room is a great view, but usually this would cost a lot of money. However, with a little searching you can find places that are reasonably priced but have a stunning view too!
Kawaguchiko Station Inn is centrally located just opposite Kawaguchiko station in the Five Lakes area around Mount Fuji. Usually to stay this centrally with a good view you would be looking at quite a large hotel bill. However, this ideally located Inn offers rooms for a very reasonable price… and what a view!
This is easily the most iconic view in all of Japan and you can get it from 2700 yen! Kawaguchiko Station Inn has received an award for Excellence from Trip Advisor and has many glowing reviews. They have shared baths with a view of Mount Fuji and also views from the rooms. This is a small Inn so it does get booked up quickly, not a surprise when you see this view from your bedroom window!
