Nikko or Mt Fuji for 6 day trip in Feb?

actually only 4 full days, first day landing at 3.30pm and last day departing at 4.40pm.

thought of staying overnight in a ryokan at Fuji but considering Nikko too.

or do Nikko as day trip? Or don't bother since not a lot of time and probably winter is not the best time to visit to Lake Chuzenji?

i've been to tokyo a few times and just came back from japan.

I have a simple question which requires a simple reply.

Have any one made a purchase from Rakuten Japan, or made any reservations for vehicles or even hotel stays?

The main question is, when you register for the Rakuten japan account, they would require your mobile phone number.

Anyone knows how to get pass it?

Thank you very much!

Fuji Five Lakes. Weather is cold so it means higher chance to get a clear view of Mt. Fuji. But it's up to you if you preferred to view it elsewhere within the city. But if you wish to stay overnight, do it on a weekend (only if your dates are 23 Feb or before) to catch the night fireworks at Kawaguchiko.

Weekends world be sat and sun? I was planning mon, 19 Feb to avoid weekend crowd. Ok, I'll change to sun, 18 feb if there's fireworks. Sounds good.

Just to check, I am not holding any JR Pass. How many days in advance can I buy the shinkansen ticket at the station?

Thanks, changed to Sunday after i checked online too. Might as well since it's a day difference. Just hope it won't be too crowded.

For non-reserved seats, you can buy before departure and queue earlier. Nozomi in particular, usually has a few trains per hour.

For reserved seats, if you want to take a particular train, might want to book a few days earlier. But usually non-peak period or weekdays is ok to not book in advance, won't be sold out.

Seats reservations cost just slightly more. Without reservations, you might want to take the 'less crowded' trains e. g. from tokyo or Shinagawa, my experience is that the trains ending at shin-osaka will usually be less crowded than those ending at hakata or from shin-osaka, take the trains starting from shin-osaka rather than those that come from earlier stops.

No, you can also buy in advance or just before departure. No timing printed on the ticket, just the date.

Since we are on the topic of shinkasen. I will be from Haneda Airport and would have to travel straightaway to Sapporo. Do i need to book my seat to Sapporo in advance or can i just hop on to any train with my JR Pass?

If I do need to reserve, can I book the seat from Thailand? As I would be transiting there first.
