Universal Studio can mah? I thought it can't.

Would be great if you can share any links.

In additional, do you guys typically get the Wifi Dongle while walking around? It appears it's a lot more convenient. Was thinking to get from Sg prior to leaving.

Hi, I would like to visit the MT Fuji mountain. May I know how could I get there from Shinjuku Station? I would be staying at Hotel Sunroute Shinjuku. In addition, What can i do at Mt Fuji Mountain? How long would it take for a trip there?

In addition, which part of japan, i can visit for a day trip. Intend to try out the JR Rail but unsure which part is good for a visit? Probably some sight seeing and shopping.

what do u mean by trying out JR rail? coz the Yamanote line for getting ard Tokyo is JR rail as well.


or do u mean the shinkansen (bullet train)? shinkansen are for travelling long distance and they are expensive.
from Tokyo, possible day trip using shinkansen are odawara (for hakone), saitama, or utsunomiya (for nikko). but it is going to be expensive, and the trip are not covered by passes such hakone free pass or all-nikko pass.

ur hotel seems to be near shin-okubo station, which is a station away from Shinjuku station. not sure if airport bus goes there.


check whether the airport bus stops near ur hotel. airport bus is slightly more expensive, but if it can stop near ur hotel, it will save u the hassle of changing train if u go buy subway/train. else just go by train

Check out Fujikyu buses ot Keio buses. They have direct bus to Fuji 5th station passing through Kawaguchiko. They depart from Shinjuku. Takes around 2.5hrs to reach.

For day trips, you can try a few. Hakone is a popular one, Kawaguchiko is quite popular as well. Depends on the season you are going, you can try Hitachi Kaihin Koen in Ibaraki. Then there are Nikko, Nagano etc but 1 day may be very tight.

Planning to visit Higashimokoto Shibazakura Park (ひがしもこと芝桜公園) next year but this place seems to be in a ulu place. I don't want to travel all the way out there then back again. Is there some nearby places of interest I can visit together with it? 1-2hr travelling time between destinations is ok.
