Hakone & Mt Fuji Fifth Station

Hi, i am travelling to Tokyo free and easy next month. Having a little confused with the arrangement. Currently i have a JR 7 days pass and also planning to purchase a Hakone Free Pass when i am there. Places that i want to visit will be Hakone, Mt Fuji Fifth Station and Gotemba Premium Outlet. For you information, i will be staying in Shibuya area.

My questions is:-

  1. How should i arrange the itinerary in ONE day?
  2. From Hakone, how do i get to Mt Fuji Fifth Station?
  3. From Hakone/ Mt Fuji Fifth Station, how do i get to Gotemba Premium Outlet?

Thanks

Hi there,

There are many ways to go about this! My advise would be to have a look at this access map, so you can get a feel for the area.

Additionally visiting Hakone, Mt Fuji Fifth Station and Gotemba on a single day is simply not practical. Just Hakone can keep you busy for days. I would recommend making a selection of the 2 places you wish to see most and stick to those.

Thanks for you prompt reply.

It is worth buying Hakone Free Pass? Is there any pass that only cover the cable car, train,ropeway and cruise?

And if i travel to Odawara station by JR pass, can i transfer to Hakone using Hakone Tozan Train?

The Hakone Free Pass can make for a good deal as it covers most transport in the Hakone area, including the ropeway and cablecar.

You can indeed use the JR Pass to travel to Odawara, from Odawara the Tozan line is available.

Just to reconfirm ..

I can use my JR pass to travel to Odawara. And when i reach Odawara, i can purchase my Hakone Free Pass there right?
