Can I get to Mt. Fuji using my jr pass or should I use the Hakone Freepass?
Also, where is the best place to visit Mt. Fuji? I dont want to hike just take nice pictures.
Maybe Lake Ashi?

Thank you for your help

Hi there,

At this time of year the best place to be is around the Hakone area - climbing and hiking will be pretty dangerous!

You can travel to Odawara with the JR Pass, and from there buy the cheaper (¥3,900) Hakone Freepass to take you around the sights.

Hope this helps!
