Day trip to see Fuji

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will visiting Japan from Nov. 9 to Dec. 8. This is our third lengthy trip there. We're starting in Osaka and this time will be emphasizing Kyushu (including a 10-day Kunisaki Trek with Walk Japan, a 3-night stay on our own on Yakushima, a couple of nights in Kagoshima, and a night in Fukuoka). We'll then head north to Kurashiki for a couple of nights, ending with a week in Tokyo before flying back to San Francisco December 8.

Of course I've been studying the relevant posts on the Forum (and Japan Guide, etc.) about these places and once again appreciate the information provided. I do have one specific question: We want to do a day trip to see Mt Fuji while we are in Tokyo. We've been in Fuji-viewing areas (e.g., Enoshima) on the previous trips but, not surprisingly, it's been hidden. We are thinking that to maximize the possibility of getting a view of the mountain, it would be wise to check the weather reports while we're in Tokyo and decide while we're there which day we should go. (Not sure if that's too optimistic or if there is a better plan--advice?)

IF we follow that plan and settle on a day, what is the best way to see Fuji on a day trip--an organized tour to the Fuji Five Lakes region? or on our own to Hakone for the day? Or are we crazy to do a day trip?

Thanks for any advice you can give.
