questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

mount fuzi

Mount fuzi

We have 7 days japan railpass- first class. Now we want to go from tokyo for one day Mount fuzi day tour.Now we have two options given by tour company for return from Mount fuzi.
1= By tour motor coach. 2= drop at odawara or hakone JR station for bullet train.
Which option is better, faster & comfortable.
Cost of both option is same.Thanks.


Hi there,

It really depends on how fast the motor coach is I think. In general though getting the bullet train from Odawara will be a much faster return trip (Odawara to Tokyo is 35mins by bullet) so if you have JR Passes already I think I'd go for that option.

Hope this helps!
