Ah, Mount Fuji — that magical view dreamt about by thousands across the world as they imagine an adventure in the Land of the Rising Sun. But aside from this, Japan is also known for its mineral-rich hot springs, also known as onsens, that provide the perfect setup of relaxation for your vacation. So for the ultimate culture trip, why not combine both to maximise your travel experience? Read on to find out more about the best onsens that offer sweeping views of Japan’s most iconic landmark.
The first on our list is a beautiful ryokan reflecting traditional Japan, equipped with modern resort facilities and stunning views throughout the property. Kaneyamaen boasts indoor and outdoor natural hot springs with water from deep within Mount Fuji, as well as open-air baths in guestrooms with breathtaking views of the mountain and surrounding landscape that changes with the seasons.
