Beautiful restaurant and good service. It's worth the wait. The food is very good because you are your own cook :)). The fish is fresh and tasty, perfectly seasoned. The staff is very welcoming and they speak English.

The restaurant opens at 11am and they serve their meals fresh and ready to be cooked on the charcoal they prepare in a furnace outside. The trout is grown in house and extremely fresh when served. The meals are served in a hearth on charcoal and the food is cooked over it. The meats and vegetables included in the combo is amazing and freshly pairs together. This is a genuine authentic experience and I recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a traditional Japanese experience.

This was a return trip, having been here in 2018 (there was this small pandemic in between), but happy to see the restaurant had survived. The food, drink and (smoky) experience were largely unchanged and, in a world where "very unique" is wildly overused, appropriate in this case. We were quite happy with the experience. Two watch-outs: 1. The wait time can be substantial. Not sure what drives it, although our educated guess is the tourist bus schedule in Kawaguchiko is a major driver, At 1:40pm we waited almost 90 minutes, When we were done at 4:45pm, no wait at all 2. Every dish includes a fish, on a skewer, still alive. Very Japanese, but...gird yourself. To repeat, very unique is uniquely correct here.

What an incredible experience; an ancient farmhouse, delicious barbecue (do it yourself) and a wonderful atmosphere. Unbeatable.

If you wish to come for the self cooking and experience to add up your itinerary. This concept might be something special. Price wise, might be a bit steep. Food wise taste quite normal even when you had order the premiums from the menu. Free parking outside the restaurant.

It's a traditional charcoal grill eating house that's around 15 min walk from kawaguchiko station. Easy to navigate and find as it's by the main road. Sat around on the floor a charcoal grill bed dug into the ground. Our food is skewered and grilled slowly over the heat. Gloves were provided for guest to protect our hands in case it got too hot when we handled our food skewers. An great experience overall. The food, the seasoning sauces the people the place and ambience. It's one compulsory place for lunch on our itinerary - checked 😀

To say this restaurant was good would be an understatement. Food was excellent, service was exceptional, and prices were affordable as well. A very unique experience whereby you had to sit on the mats and barbecue food on a charcoal-style grill. We ordered a "Fuji" set meal - for 4,000 yen, there were different delicacies like boar, a whole prawn, grilled fish, shellfish, as well as a choice between squid and quail. It is recommended to barbecue multiple sticks of food at once, if not the meal would take a long time. The flavour of the food was enhanced by a special sauce that tasted similar to soy sauce. At the end of the meal, the boss even engaged in casual chatter with us, telling us more about the places around Kawaguchiko and Mt. Fuji, as well as how to access them easily. He was very friendly, and the experience was well worth the money. Very highly recommended if you were to visit this place! It is about 10 minutes' walk from Kawaguchiko Station, and be sure to get there by 7pm because that is the last order time. Thereafter, you can spend your time eating delicious and absorbing the ambience for the next two hours.

We came here for the dining experience like many travellers. The A char (fish), rainbow trout, squid, prawn and scallop are fresh. Beef abit tough (maybe we over grilled), quail meat not our type of meat. A large variety of different meat for different menu package. Interesting experience to heat up your sake over charcoal fire. We're quite lazy to grill our food, but its a good dining experience made even better by their friendly and fun service staff. Restaruant had mainly tourists and no local eaters when we were here.

What a place! This restaurant was a pure delight and perhaps our favourite dining experience whilst in Japan. The setting in a historic home was wonderful and the set menu prices are reasonable for what you get - we enjoyed grilling our own seafood, vegetables and other tasty treats, and the hōtō soup noodles were also delicious. We felt very relaxed and at ease here, and the service was always friendly from start to finish. We went for my partner's birthday dinner - it's perfect for celebrating a special occasion, and to enjoy a slice of authentic Japanese culture!

This was by far the best restaurant that we’ve eaten, in Japan. Not just for the food but the whole experience. We all ordered a mixed seafood and meat platter which we cooked over hot coals. We were served by the owner who was so helpful and spoke very good English. Don’t go if you aren’t happy cooking your own food but we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.

I stumbled on this restaurant after searching for a place to eat in Kawaguchiko area. I'm glad to say it was one of my best eating experience in the city. Also, the service was awesome. The building has an old Japanese look and feel to it. The owner said that the building is more than 100 years old. When we first arrived, we didn't know if they accepted credit card or cash only. When we were already seated down, we found out that it was cash only. I was about to leave to go to go an ATM but the owner insisted that we stay and that he would take us to the ATM after we're done eating. I was surprised that he would offer to do that. So we stayed. The food was really good. There's several sets of orders to choose from and each tier offers different meat or extra food. Each person has to choose a set. When the food is presented, they go over the instructions on how to cook and eat it. Basically, you BBQ it over an open grill. The staff here are amazing and really accommodating. Our server at the time was actually the owner but I didn't know it at first. He service was quick and welcoming and smiled the entire time. We had some small talk and asked us questions about where we're from. He speaks pretty good English because he said he lived in USA for a short time many years ago. If you are ever visiting Mt. Fuji, I highly recommend you visit this place. This place deserves a visit. Just the building itself was worth checking out because after our meal, the owner encouraged us to go upstairs to see around.

I ventured on my own to the Fuji Five Lakes Region. I missed my scheduled bus ride in the morning and ended up at the Kawaguchiko station later at noon and very hungry. I googled "where to eat nearby" and Sanrokuen popped up. It seemed interesting. It was a pleasant 10 minute walk from the station. The place is picturesque. A charcoal oven meets the guests at the front of the main structure. I didn't have a reservation but was lucky enough to be accommodated. The owner/staff were very welcoming. Even if I were dining solo, I was assigned my own charcoal pit and didn't have to share with other diners. There are several set menus to choose from and additional items may be ordered a la carte. I will try to post the menu. All were reasonably priced. Food came right away, all in skewers (except for the abalone) ready for cooking. I received instructions and began grilling. I was just soaking in the ambiance the whole time. Everything was fresh! The rainbow trout was exceptional! Houten noodle soup is a traditional/native food in the area. I was too full by the time the soup was served. It was a generous serving and I am happy I had a chance to try. My Sanrokuen experience is something I hope to share one day with my family and friends. This place is highly recommended!

We discovered Sanrokuen by checking for restaurants near our hotel in Kawaguchiko. It was within walking distance and looked interesting so we gave it a try. At first we thought it was closed, even the front entrance seemed closed. However we were greeted by a very friendly guy as soon as we walked in. He brought guided us to our " traditional charcoal cooking pit and explained the menu, cooking and seating. Fortunately he saw me messing with the pillows and brought a small stool for me to sit on....which I needed and greatly appreciated. My wife used the pillows. It is a unique experience that you MUST try. Yes you do your own cooking but thats the charm, doing something different and in the " old ways " a truly Unique cultural experience. They bring the hot coals out and shortly after your food arrives, all on skewers of course, but it's so easy, they explain exactly how to cook everything. Vegetables, fish, squid, I even had Quail. Everything was so fresh and delicious. Not to mention FUN. So be brave and give this a try when visiting Lake Kwaguchiko in the Mt. Fuji area.
