The best way to experience Japan's famous cherry blossoms? Well we think it must be a stay at the gorgeous Hoshinoya Fuji -- a totally breathtaking glamping resort on the hillside of Mount Fuji, with scenic views over Lake Kawaguchi.
Displaying the very best of modern Japanese minimal design, the concrete cubes boast floor to ceiling windows and doors opening up to a private balcony overlooking Mount Fuji.
Your cube is a serene haven where the bed is the focal point, and comes with all your desired luxury mod-cons of a finer hotel stay. On the balcony you can also relax by a wood burner.
There are 2 restaurants on-site serving up modern Japanese cuisine with a twist, and over at the Cloud Terrace you will eat al fresco among the trees.
You can get here easily either by bus or train from Tokyo (departing app. every hour), and the journey takes about 2 hours.
You can book your stay over at Booking.com with prices starting from app. £600 per night*, but will be slightly more over Cherry Blossom season, which is round mid-April.
