‘Kaze-no-KUKUNA’ at the lakeside of Lake Kawaguchi opened on July 17, 2010 after completion of its 2nd stage renewal project. One of the leading resort hotels in the district invested about 1,800 million yen for its 1st stage renewal project between 2005 and 2006. ‘Chuo-kan’ and ‘Plaza-kan’ houses were remodeled, and ‘Tenbou-kan’ house was newly built on the project. The hotel was also renamed as ‘Kaze-no-terrace KUKUNA’ and restarted as a distinguish resort hotel. ‘KUKUNA’ is said to be derived form a word meaning sunshine in a southern paradise ‘Hawaii’.


Since last February, the hotel has also invented 500 million yen for remodeling of guest rooms under the concept ‘Light, Water, and Wind’. Remodeled guest rooms are called such as ‘Zashitsu’ and ‘Zayoushitsu’. They appeals as ‘guest rooms are not simply Japanese-style, Western-style, nor contemporary Japanese-style, but completely different space of stylish and resort minded healing places for our guests.’

Located in the north lakeside of the Lake Kawaguchi, it became now a very popular resort hotel as good place where guests can enjoy seeing ‘Sakasa-fuji’ or a reversed image of Mt. Fuji reflected on Lake Kawaguchi. The hotel has 65 guest rooms in the 9-story buildings.

Mt. Fuji and Lake Kawaguchi

Mt. Fuji (富士山,) is the highest mountain in Japan at 3,776.24 m (12,389 ft). Along with Mt. Tate and Mt.Haku, it is one of Japan’s “Three Holy Mountains” (三霊山,). An active volcano that last erupted in 1707–08, Mt. Fuji is just west of Tokyo, and can be seen from there on a clear day. Mount Fuji’s exceptionally symmetrical cone is a well-known symbol of Japan and it is frequently depicted in art and photographs, as well as visited by sightseers and climbers.

Lake Kawaguchi (河口湖,) is a lake near Mt. Fuji, Japan. Located in Fujikawaguchilp, Yamanashi, it is the most popular of the Fuji Five Lakes in terms of tourists, and is part of the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park. Lake Kawaguchi also serves as a major hub for those wishing to climb Mount Fuji during the climbing season (July & August). It is situated at an altitude of approximately 800 meters, which accounts for its relatively cool summers and frequently icy winters. Recent years have seen Lake Kawaguchi replace nearby Lake Yamanaka as the most popular in the area, current population stands at around 25,000 (2005 figures)

In the Fujikawaguchiko onsen area are 5 varieties of hot spring (and their literal translations); Tensui (water of heaven), Reisui (water of the soul), Fuyou (cotton rose), Reihou (Sacred mountain), and Shuurei (beauty). The defining attributes of the various types of spring are the natural levels of varying chlorides such as calcium and sodium. These natural springs are well known for helping ease neuralgia, muscle rheumatisms, poor blood circulation, as well as increasing general energy levels and combating fatigue.
