Hi
I will be travelling with 3 of my kids (13,14 & 15 yrs of age) from Shinjuku to Mt Fuji (Kawaguchiko Station). I understand that tourists will be able to purchase the Fuji Hakone Pass. However, I am concern as I will be staying in Mt Fuji area from 9-12 Nov. Are we still entitled to purchase the Fuji Hakone Pass as it is valid for only 3 days. What other alternatives for us to travel to MT Fuji? Do we have to book the transport online? How do we book & what is the link?
Another concern is our luggage. We will have 4 luggage during our travel. Would it be a problem for us?

Thank you for your kind help.

Hi there,

Unfortunately, the Fuji Hakone Pass which includes the expressway bus ticket from/to Shinjuku is valid for only 3 day from the date of first use. So, the Fuji Hakone Pass might not be the right choice for you.
If you want to go to Kawaguchiko and spend a few days in Mt. Fuji area, I would recommend that you just purchase a round trip ticket from Shnjuku to Kawaguchiko from the following website.

Then, you can just take local buses which connect major sightseeing spots. No reservation is needed for those local buses.
Please see the link below for more information.

Other option is to use Q-pack tickets.
The Q pack ticket includes a round trip ticket from Shinjuku to Fujikyu Highland and a one day free pass for the Fuji Q Highland which is one of the most thrilling amusement park in Japan. As your children are over 12 years old, Fuji Q highland may be a fun place to enjoy all day long. There are also Fujiyama onsen (hot spring) in the same place, so you can enjoy hot springs as well.

You can take a local bus from Fujikyu Highland to Kawaguchiko.

As for the luggage, you can bring your luggage into the highway buses. Also, once you arrive at Kawaguchiko, there are a lot of lockers and places where you can leave your luggage.
