Toki no Sumika Gotemba Yamanashi Reviews
The ultimate Yamanashi getaway Jan 02, 2010
Yamanshi's Toki no Sukima Gotemba is a complex hotel and tourist attraction located in the outskirts of the Mount Fuji area. There is so much about this complex to describe in words. It functions as a holiday wonderland in Japan, with many things to see and do. The hotel consists of a variety of apartments and cottages available for rent. The cottages where my in laws and I stayed at was a spacious and cozy one. The cottage was round shaped in the form of a Mongolian Yurt, (photos to be provided for later). The room was nice and heated.
At night there are many luminescent sights to be seen that surround the hotel, especially during the holiday season where cherry blossom trees are dressed in endless amounts of lights. There many restaurants that will spoil guests' appetite, ranging from high end entrees to "all you can eat" buffets.
There are also game rooms, public and private onsen, spas, skating rinks, and even an animal safari nearby. This resort has everythng! The Toki no Sumika Gotemba is a drive away from everything, but makes up for everything a visitor needs.
Being a Japanese getaway, this is regarded as an extremely expensive hotel, depending on the room, or cottage guest would rent out. Overall, I would recommend this as a high end resort but not for those who do not have the means to enjoy this winter paradise. Excellent value though, I would go again if I weren't limited within my American budget.
