Hotel Review: Fujizakura Inn

Akemashite Omedetou Gozaimasu! It’s the Japanese new year greeting that equates with Happy New Year! Hope you had a fantastic New Year’s Eve. Did you end the year with a trip? How was it? Share in the comments below!

You might have guessed that I did bid goodbye to 2018 and welcome 2019 away from home. My lifetime traveling partner and I decided to see Mt. Fuji, the highest mountain in Japan that’s situated located near the Pacific coast of central Honshu, just west of Tokyo. More about it on my next post. As the title suggests, you’re about to read my two cents that you didn’t ask but I’ll tell you anyway.

We booked this hotel with a passion for one big reason. They boast its great location where you can catch sight of Mt. Fuji. I love that it’s only about an hour and a half away from home. Without further ado, here’s a photo I took on our last day.

Let me be honest that this picture of mine doesn’t do full justice to its beauty. The hotel didn’t fail to fulfill the promise. A platform is provided for the guests to climb up and enjoy the superb view.

On to the room..

We booked this hotel through and chose the room with the bunk bed. declares it to be a twin room, but the hotel’s site names it as Economy Bunk Bed. The rate shown on doesn’t go with the rate shown on the hotel’s site either. This is a confusing part for me. However, when we got to the reception the receptionist asked for the rate based on It could be that the hotel’s site hasn’t been updated yet. The difference isn’t that big anyway.

good for 2

This room is 15 square meters wide and is equipped with working TV, bidet toilet, air-conditioner, and cute veranda where Mt. Fuji can be visible. The size didn’t bother us at all. As soon as I went in, I immediately noticed how clean and tidy the room was. But there was one thing that didn’t escape my husband’s notice. He saw something on the wall that looked like a booger. Then I also discovered two more on the ceiling. The discovery didn’t ruin our stay. We just laughed it off.

There were basic amenities such as shampoo, conditioner, body wash, toothbrush, and hair-dryer.

Slippers and yukata were also provided.

We just stayed for a night and it was lovely! Having easy access to grocery stores, pharmacy, supermarket, post office, various eateries, and great spots to view Mt. Fuji is the hotel’s best asset. For its reasonable price and admirable site, I’d highly recommend it.

  3. One small correction: The “Having easy access to grocery stores, pharmacy, supermarket, ….” part is right if you have a car. I guess they are a little far from the hotel on foot.(Maybe around 15 minutes?)
