How long do people typically spend on the Mount Fuji 5th station?
I'm travelling from Tokyo in the morning and it will probably be noon or early afternoon after leaving my luggage at the resort.
Note that the bus from Kawaguchiko Station takes 50 mins and last bus leaves 5th station at 4ish, seems like I should go to the 5th station only the next morning?
What should I do in the afternoon after lunch in that case? Kachi Kachi Ropeway?
2 hours is too long. There's nothing much except for a few souvenir stores, washrooms and small eateries at the 5th station. A lot of tour buses only allow at most 20-30 minutes to stay here. You'll be on Mt. Fuji but it's only beautiful to look at from afar.
Might as well just head to other places instead. When and why are you heading there in the first place? Climbing season?
