i will plan and spend a night at mount fuji or whereabout at least. the experience will be awesome, onsen and the kiseki.
Impossible! Cause I've booked airbnb etc already. So day ride is the best I can do. But follow tour is like almost $150 per head

Since u dun need it the same day, y not just use normal forwarding services such ta-q-bin, and fwd it straight to ur next hotel.
Get ur current hotel to help u make the arrangements and to help u call the next hotel to inform them of the incoming luggage

If you’re staying at Sunshine City Prince Hotel, take the bus.

Same thought that I had, 1 way straight there, no need to change and considering there are luggage to carry.

Just wondering, are these bus usually full? do we need to pre-book them before going Japan?

$320 for 10 nights is super cheap. My 10 nights already close to about $1.5k
