Optimum use of JR pass

I have booked a 7 day JR Pass...I am scheduled to be in japan on 2nd evening till 12th
I am staying at shinjuku
I want to go to Hiroshima/ Osaka and Mont Fuji in no particular order but i will stay in Shinjuku only
Please advise


Hi there,

What would you like advise on? Hiroshima and Osaka are quite far away from Shinjuku and making day trips is possible but not recommend due to the long distances involved, it would mean spending most of the day on the train.

For Fuji see:
