Mt. Fuji is one of the most visited places in Japan, known for its unique symmetry, active volcanic surroundings, and for its year-round beauty. The greater Mt. Fuji area is also one of the most popular places to stay overnight. So if you’re planning on staying at night or two the region, why not elevate your Mt. Fuji accommodation by staying somewhere with a private onsen?
Many Mt. Fuji accommodation options offer amazing views of the mountain from their rooftops, balconies, and even from private onsen rooms. Soak in some views of Mt. Fuji before soaking in an onsen at these 15 Mt. Fuji hotels with private onsen!
This post of Mt. Fuji accommodation options includes everything from no-frills Mt. Fuji hotels to incredible ryokan (traditional Japanese inns): from the ultra-luxury to the budget-friendly. Although not all hotels have views of Mt. Fuji from the rooms (many of them do!), one thing is for sure: they all have private onsen to soak your stresses away.
Where rooms are available to reserve with private onsen and Mt. Fuji views, I’ve made sure to mention this in bold. You can sometimes tell by the name of the room on Booking.com that it has a private onsen with Mt. Fuji views as well.

15 Mt. Fuji Hotels with Private Onsen
The Mt. Fuji onsen hotels listed below are ordered by price (USD) at the time of writing (lowest to highest) for rooms with breakfast and dinner included, if available. If you’re traveling to Mt. Fuji and Japan on a budget, it’s best to stick to the private onsen options at the top of the list.
That being said, it’s definitely worth taking a peek at the luxurious onsen hotels at the bottom of my list too. Often times if you pay a little more, you’ll have Mt. Fuji views included in the private onsen soak. Paying a little more often means Japanese kaiseki, or multi-course meals, are also included in the accommodation cost. You won’t want to leave once you’re checked in!
