Well, I can’t recommend enough Shuhoukaku Kogetsu for your stay. Full frontal view of Mt. Fuji with Lake Kawaguchiko in the foreground.
Food here is out of control good. You would easily drop $200 pp on this in the states on dinner and breakfast (tuna sashimi, tempura frying station, etc.). Rooms are about 250-300+ pp a night during peak.
Dinner in photos:
Really good fish paste or squid paste dumplings mixed with edamame.
Local river trout sashimi
Sashimi: sayori, chu toro, shima aji, shark.
Top notch chu toro
Shabu of a local “WineTon aka Wine Pork”. Supposedly pigs that are fed wine. The porcine answer to Kobe beef I guess. Really tasty but also just like the silky pork I get at Mitsuwa.
Some salt grilled spring bamboo.
Fried lamb chops with foie. Foie was a mess but the lamb chop was really well done. Really nice crispy exterior.
Sweet shrimp dumplings to bookend the meal.
Clam rice and soup dish to finish
Super sweet melon
