The Fujisan Mishima Tokyu Hotel has opened its doors in Mishima, Japan.
The Tokyu Hotels Group’s new property, which is about 45 minutes from Tokyo by train, offers sweeping views of Mount Fuji. The hotel company says the hotel is built around one of Japan’s most important Shinto Shrines called the Mishima Shrine. Guests can also enjoy activities like paragliding and cruising in the area.
Out of the 195 rooms, about 70 per cent offer views of Mount Fuji while the remaining rooms overlook the Mishima town area. Guests can choose between a traditional Japanese style room with tatami flooring and futon beds or a “western style” room.
The top floor of the Fujisan Mishima Tokyu Hotel features traditional Japanese style baths overlooking Mount Fuji. The hotel says these communal baths are “filled with the water from rain and snow that have trickled down Mt. Fuji through its mineral-rich surface over time, and heated to 40 degrees, together with a sauna area and a cold pool to dip into”. The hotel says there are both male and female facilities, each offering an indoor pool and an outdoor pool.
The chefs at Fujisan Mishima Tokyu Hotel are trained in Robata style cooking, which the hotel describes as “Japanese BBQ cuisine with an open kitchen”. Guests can also enjoy the hotel’s collection of local sake, beers and Japanese whisky. Western style meals are also available.
