Sorry for the late reply.
Basically, there are no specific hot springs. Depending on your itinerary, you can also stay at a hot spring hotel in Lake Kawaguchi and rest for a night before continuing your journey.
Information on hot spring hotels in Lake Huguchi: https://rakurakujp.com/%E6%B2%B3%E5%8F%A3%E6%B9%96%E8%87%AA%E7%94%B1%E8%A1%8C-%E6%B2%B3%E5%8F%A3%E6%B9%96%E5%91%A8%E9%82%8A-%E6%BA%AB%E6%B3%89%E6%97%85%E9%A4%A8-%E5%83%B9%E6%A0%BC%E6%AF%94%E8%BC%83/

However, ふじやま in Rigui Hot Spring can also be considered, because the price is not too high, and there are restaurants, you can decide whether to stay or not according to the itinerary.
