Hi there!

You can certainly cover all ove them perfectly except for Mt Fuji, for which the JR Pass will take you most of the way there (either to Otsuki for Kawaguchiko, or to Odawara for Hakone). You can check out all the stations/locations for your trip on the Japan Rail Pass map.

Hope this helps!

Thanks Mari for your advise.

Due to time constraint, should i stop at Mt Fugi from Kyoto and spend a night there before proceed to Tokyo

or

Direct to Tokyo from Kyoto and do a day trip to Mt Fugi from Tokyo ?

I'd probably stop at Odawara and then visit Hakone overnight (which has great views of Mt Fuji). Then the next day travel on to Tokyo. This will mean you don't double back on yourself.

Hope this helps!
