We are heading to Japan in Feb 2020 with itinerary as follows:
Shinjuku 2 nights
Mt Fuji 1 night
Osaka 4 nights
Kyoto 3 nights
Then off to Hakuba for 10 nights skiing before heading back to Tokyo for one night before we fly out.
I have been reading up on getting between most places however just have a couple of questions.
Shinjuku - Mt Fuji, I understand we can only get to Otsuki with the JR pass ? Is there an early train out of Shinjuku as we want to explore as much as we can the day we get there (weather permitting!).
Mt Fuji (Kawaguchiko) - Osaka, I have read different routes all which seem not so simple! What would be the best route to take?
Also, getting around the cities of Osaka & Kyoto, is much covered by JR pass or is it private trains we will have to purchase tickets for?
Thank you in advance! :)
