Hi there!

Hakone is really great, but is a little bit distant from Mt Fuji. For a closer view, you should try Kawaguchiko. To get to Kawaguchiko, you can use JR trains up to Otsuki station, where you will have to transfer to a non-JR line (the Fujikyu line) up to Kawaguchiko. Here's a sample itinerary for you.

Hope this helps!
