Need to 'donate' 1k Yen if going to Station 6 direction.
Not sure if there is any other trekking around 5th Station.

Definitely Nara if you haven't already gone.
Other than that ... maybe Kobe? At least you can do the touristy checklist of "I went to Kobe to eat Kobe beef"
Will try both! Need JR pass? Where to buy? I'm in osaka alr, cold now..

Not safe. Tokyo and Hiroshima residents all no new births since last 10 years cos of radiation. And most of us here in these Japan forums never ever go Japan since the accident cos kiasi. The few of us who dared to go, came back with mutation like three hands and extra two fingers.

looking to go tokyo early july
delta air around 601


too early to book for july or can book already??

have no knowledge and ideas of what to do at japan other than interested to climb mount ji

any recommendation ?
if u are climbing mt Fuji, u will probably be staying in Lake Kawaguchi area. if it is ur first trip, u will probably want to visit Tokyo.
for a start, u can look at japan-guide and shortlist some places u are interested to visit:

yes, can book many kinds of huts at various stations.
http://www.mtfuji.jpn.org/

I am waiting for 1 April to book the 8.5th stn hut:

You can based in Tokyo(like me), just that you need to make the early trip up to Mt Fuji. I am waiting for the sales of this pass for the travel from Tokyo to Mt Fuji(to & fro)
