Going to Japan in a couple of months. Everything is slowly coming together, however we are finding it hard to organise at tour of Mt Fuji that starts in Fuji city! It seems a majority begin in Tokyo... which defeats the purpose of us staying in Fuji City. We are still going ahead with staying in Fuji City as accommodation has been booked and paid for, we are just going to make our own way there and see Mt Fuji without a guide! However I am finding it a little difficult... so if anyone could help?
We are staying in a hotel close to Hamamatsu-cho Station. And in Fuji City we are staying in a place near Shin-Fuji Station. What is the best and quickest way to get from our hotel in Tokyo to our hotel in Fuji? And from our hotel how do we make our way to the Kachi Kachi Yama Ropeway? I don't need to be part of a tour group to access the ropeway do I? We will be getting a JR pass so we would prefer for travel to be on lines that are covered by our pass. But I know that when we reach the city of Fuji it won't be as possible. Any help would be grateful!!!
