The best way (or place) to see Mt. Fuji while staying in Tokyo

Jump to last reply

Hi, We are in the process of planning our trip to Japan 12/19-1/3/15. Initially we wanted to stay for a night in the area of Hakone, 12/30-12/31, but the pickings were slim ,outdated and expensive, plus we were concerned there might be some difficulty getting back to Tokyo in a timely manner due to the holiday. For this reason, we currently have plans to go from Koya-san straight to Tokyo.
I understand that it is sometimes difficult to even see Fuji-san in the shinkansen because the trains are traveling so fast. I am now trying to figure out a way that my son can still see Mt. Fuji.
My question to the forum is where can we best see Mt. fuji? I heard that on a clear day the mountain could be seen from the Tokyo sky tree . I understand that there are some day trips but not sure what will be available since it is during the holidays .Is it worth taking a day trip by bus or train with a group? Has any one taken such a group tour? What did they do on the tour? Worthwhile?
thanks so much for your time.
