Traveling from narita to tokyo then mt. Fuji

Norman Norman, Lived in Japan

I would recommend taking the shuttle bus to the Busta Shinjuku. Then change the bus to the Mt.Fuji area. I believe that it is most simple and cheapest way to get Mt.Fuji from Narita.

If you like whiskey, try visiting one of weste n style authentic bars in Tokyo. You will be able to try Japanese whiskeys more than Hibiki or Yamasaki. Omoide Yokocho and Golden Gai have great nostalgic atmosphere but maybe too touristic.

Mari Takahashi Mari Takahashi, Living in Japan

Maybe mountains and hiking? Tokyo is considered to be a city, but there are a lot of nature in the west part. Mt.Takao and Okutama hiking trail are must visit places if you enjoy being in nature :)
