Where2Golf says: 

Kawana Hotel (Fuji course): Vying with the course at Hirono Golf Club for the status of No.1 in Japan, Kawana Hotel's Fuji course is another sublime Hugh Alison layout. And, unlike inland Hirono, here you can enjoy the scenic splendour of a fabulous clifftop setting. The hotel-guest-only Fuji course is kept company by an older sibling, the public-access Oshima layout. Course description, images and other details to follow soon.
