Itchiku Kubota Art Museum, Fujikawaguchiko-machi

The artist also designed the entire hillside museum in a style inspired by Gaudi; stroll the gardens to fully appreciate the scenic location, with views of Mt. Fuji and the nearby lake. As a bonus treat, don't forget to have a cup of warm tea in the adjacent tea house.

  • Garden is lovely. But the museum I didn't enjoy. The museum displays kimonos that indeed look nice but this is not what I came for or what I am into . The building is nice. You pay 1300 for an adult entrance an other 500 if you'd like to visit a glass something exposition we didn't visit but that gives you access to a nice view point a d a drink is included.
  • Very nice discovery about a famous kimono designer in Japan, they have a 20 minutes video in English that explains the his life. The kimonos are breathtaking. The museum park is also very nice to have a small walk.
  • Wow, set in a beautiful quiet forest the gaudi inspired gate sets the scene. Inside and out is a thing of architectual beauty and the kimono exhibition and tea rooms are unique. Go visit
  • Breathtaking. I had never been, or even thought that I could be, moved to tears of beauty, but this display did it. I cannot recommend enough just how important it is to any visitor to Japan to see this exhibit.
  • Great chance to have a look to the beauty of Kimono and the tie/dying technic

Where to stay in Fujikawaguchiko-machi

The lakeside resort town of Fujikawaguchiko-machi offers a great variety accommodations, reflective of the diverse reasons people have for visiting the town. Some simple guesthouses and hostels dot the more modest streets of the main urban areas, while more upmarket, resort-style hotels with "onsen" (traditional Japanese spas) are located close to the lake, or sit in privileged positions just out of town. Campsites and inns in the surrounding rural areas provide particularly good options for those just wanting to get up Mount Fuji.
