this is an old question that usually appear from somebody would like to see the Mt. Fuji.
Need some info from VT members, I will be there on earlier of October this year.
1. Kawaguchiko or Hakone for enjoying the Mt Fuji scenery
2. any recommended budget hotel? Is it pretty good to stay overnight at hotel nearby the train station or near the lake Kawaguchiko or the if Hakone the hot spring
3. what should we do for nightlife if we stay at Kawaguchiko or if we stay at Hakone.
VT member experience info could be appreciated.
Hi there. I am hoping to stay in the hostel in Kawaguchi-ko in order to climb Mt Fuji. I have heard that hostels in Japan are "different" than they are here in England and elsewhere. Certainly more insitutional I hear, with check-out times a curfews etc. I was wondering if anyone has stayed in this hostel? Specifically, I will be staying here for several days, and need to know if baggage storage is available (not really wanting to drag everything up there...) in the hostel during the daytime? The hostel website only has a phone number, not a website. Thanks. Martin
