tokyo-mount fuji-fujikyu highland-kyoto-osaka

Hi, I would like to check whether is it worth it to buy a 7day jr pass with my itinerary.

Besides travelling in tokyo, we are planning to do a one day trip to mount fuji and fujikyu highland. Could you recommend a place near fujikyu so that we are able to see mount fuji and visit both fujikyu and see mount fuji in one day?

If we are travelling to mount fuji and fujikyu from tokyo (return trip) and later from tokyo to kyoto, kyoto to osaka and osaka to nara, will the 7day jr pass be worth it?

From what I researched previously, I understand that without the return trip to&fro mt fuji&fujikyu, from tokyo to kyoto is 13,080yen, from kyoto to osaka is 1,420yen and from osaka to nara is 470yen, which would not be worth to buy a jr pass, is it correct?

thanks!

Hello there,

You are correct, for this itinerary it would be better to buy normal tickets as you travel. A JR Pass may be worth it if you also returned from Osaka to Tokyo with it.

Fuji can all be seen from around Fujikyu highlands (just Google a couple of pictures). If you an other view of Fuji, go to one of the local observatories. Such as near the Kachi Kachi Ropeway. A visit to Kawaguchiko, or any other of the Fuji Five lakes is also worth considering.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi Daniel,
thanks for the prompt reply.

Even with the addition of round trip to fujikyu&mount fuji, it would not be worth to buy the jr pass?

Thanks!

Hi again!

Unfortunately so, this is mainly because a lot of transport companies around Fuji are not part of the JR Group and you would have to pay for normal tickets, even with the JR Pass.

Hope this helps (too),
Daniel
