      Private Mt. Fuji 1 day Tour

      Japan Jul 20, 2014 at 9:46 PM

      Hi all

      I am looking for a company which operates private Mt. Fuji tour this coming December.

      My choices are limited because we require a different pickup and dropoff point. Furthermore, my pickup point is not in the main Tokyo area. In fact we are pretty near to Mt Fuji

      The Mt. Fuji tour date that we are looking at is 14 Dec 2014

      Pickup:
      Kozantei Ubuya
      富士河口湖温泉郷 湖山亭うぶや
      〒401-0303 山梨県南都留郡富士河口湖町浅川10

      At the end of the trip, we would like to return to:

      http://www.southerntower.co.jp/

      Hotel Century South Tower
      2-2-1 Yoyogi, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo 151-8583, Japan
      Tel: +81 3 5354 0111 Fax: +81 3 5354 0100

      Please advise.

      Thank you for all your help!

    • Gioji temple bicycle parking in Arashiyama?

      Japan Jul 20, 2014 at 9:27 AM

      Hello,
      I plan on renting a bike during my stay in Arashiyama.

      I'm planning on hitting:
      1. bamboo groves
      2.Jojakkoji Temple
      3. Gioji Temple
      4. Bike back to Saga Arashiyama

      I know that Jojakkoji temple has bicycle parking according kanko.city.kyoto.lg.jp/bicyc... , but I didn't see a parking lot indicated for Gioji. And Gioji is so far away, does anyone know if there's a place to legally park my bike near that temple?

      Also, with the bike, about how many hours would I need for this itinerary?
      We're planning at 3-4 hours, is this more than enough?

      Cheap Shinkansen Ticket

      Hi I would like to travel from Tokyo to Nagoya using shinkansen. I read the normal price if i was to buy on the spot is about 10,300 yen.

      I read that i can get a cheaper one by
      1) Buying from travel agent such as JTB a day before. How much discount can i get for a tourist? and is there any JTB or travel agent shop inside Tokyo station?

      2) Buying from vending machine at Ticket shops. I just know the type of tickets available are limited. Is there any further info on this?

      I hope you can advice me.

      Mt. Fuji ascent

      by stamporama Online Now Jun 10, 2014 at 12:48 AM

      I plan to climb Mt. Fuji on the 4th week this July. As I'll arrive from Kyoto, I read that the closest jump off point is the Fujinomiya 5th station. Just a few questions for those who've climbed from here:

      1. I read that there are stores that rent out any gear (raincoat, walking poles, etc.) that you might need for the climb. Where exactly are they -- at the 5th station, or near the bus/train station?
      2. The Fujinomiya trail is said to be the shortest but steepest route. How steep -- the approximate grade or angle?
      3. After descending, I suppose anyone would be tired and dirty. Since none of the stations or huts have baths, where would be the nearest place to take a shower before riding back on the train? Or is there an onsen in the vicinity?

      Thanks for any replies!

      Will there be other sites of interest in these towns to keep us occupied for 2 days?
