I will be visiting Tokyo and planning for a 2D1N trip to Hakone and would like to have Mt.Fuji view as well. However I noticed it's about 1hr journey between Hakone & Kawaguchiko. Also saw there is Fuji-Hakonepass. Need advise on this.

Toraneko Toraneko, Lived in Japan

Hi,Not sure what the question is. You could spend 1 day in Hakone and a day at the Fuji 5 Lakes. If so, the Fuji Hakone Pass is a good way to save money. As for the view of Fuji, a lot depends on the weather and it is notorious for being uncooperative. Best chances to see it clearly are in the au...

Am I able to visit Osaka Castle and go to Nara to Todaji Temple and see the deers in one day? Also are we able to hire a local guide to take us there. We will be staying at Universal Port Hotel

Norman Norman, Lived in Japan

Yes, that is possible! Between Osaka Castle and Nara Todaji Temple is only 35 km distance. You can take a cab or bus between these sightseeing points.And you can find the guide in the local or non-local travel agent. They will arrange the tour with a guide.

It seems like you are going to travel a lot around Japan. Japan Rail Pass is worth it if you are traveling long distances and using Shinkansen (bullet trains). The one-way ticket of Shinkansen from Tokyo to Kyoto costs about 13,000 yen. Strawberry picking usually open from January but "Grandberry...
