Osaka to Kyoto - Mt. Fuji

Hello!
I'm going to take the JR train from Osaka to Kyoto, and I need to know which side of the train (left or right) gets the view for the Mt. Fuji.
Thanks, Julia

Hi Julia,

I assume that you mean Osaka - Tokyo? As you can't see Fuji when you travel between Osaka and Kyoto.

For the best view, ask for a D or E seat, which is on the left side when you are coming from Osaka or Kyoto.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hey Daniel!
No, it really is from Osaka to Kyoto ha
Isn't the Mt. Fuji view really avaiable?
~saaaad~ But thanks!
It helped to know the left side is better :)
Thanks, Julia

Hey Julia,

Fuji is a bit more to the north than Kyoto and Osaka. If you wish to view Fuji, consider a visit to Shizuoka. It's easy to reach from Kyoto and completely free with the JR Pass.

Enjoy Japan!
