Tx all for the recommendations.

Yeah only 1 trip on Shinkansen from Tokyo -> Osaka, don't think JRpass will be worth it.

Wife won't let me drop themeparks haha, maybe USJ but definitely not disney.

The mount fuji trip also i'm unsure of, really packing it in and that's like a 12 hour trip just to see a mountain for 5 minutes... rather go back and spend like 3 days in the 5 lakes area.

General rule for 7-day JR pass is to take two-way trip between Tokyo and Osaka.

Otherwise, you may want to consider Platt Kodama tickets.

Just to tap on this post. You can also visit the JR Central railway museum. I think it's the only museum where you can go visit how the maglev train looks inside.

FYI, Nagoya is famous for the automobile industry - it has a lot of car assembly lines around. Toyota HQ is also located nearby.

Thanks so much for your suggestion, we will likely take Option 2 then

We are looking at spending around 11-12 days in Japan? Am hoping to cover Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Mt Fuji for the itinerary ... will it be doable in this instance? Am also not too sure if travelling to Japan during the Rugby World Cup season is advisable as well, as it may be more crowded during then
For JR shinkansen, advisable if you reserve seats. Coz during peak season, I heard you may have to stand in non-reserve seat cars.

12hr trip?
from tokyo, it is ard 2.5hrs by highway bus to lake kawaguchi to see mt fuji.
but there are lots of attractions ard lake kawaguchi and the other lakes, so i would recommend staying at least a night in the area. and to enjoy onsen there too.
maybe leave mt fuji for next trip loh

Going to Osaka end March, the weather is around 10 degrees I guess. Anyone experience going japan during this period, long john plus jeans and thick hoodie will suffice? Or should bring along those wind breakers etc

That's lovely. Considered a full bloom already? Was it very hot when you were there since it's during the typhoon season?
