    In my opinion, Mt. Fuji visit would take your precious time. It would be better to split in Kyoto and Tokyo, depending on your interest in traditional or modern Japan. about 4 years ago

    If you want to CLIMB Mt Fuji in winter, it would be a challenge. However it is possible to do a day trip to Hakone, with a day free pass from Shinjuku. If you set out early(8 ish), you will have enough daylight to do a "pirate ship" cruise on Lake Ashi, rope way, cable car and train- all included in the pass. We were rewarded with some great views when we were there in Dec 2013- first on Ashi, then on the rope way and then in Sounzan, near the vents.we spent a pleasant 1 hour in Gora which has some nice restaurants a short walk uphill from the station.between Kyoto and Tokyo, I personally would spend a little bit more time in Kyoto? There is a lot to see of the traditional Japan there.If you plan to take the Shinkansen from Kyoto to Tokyo, get a seat on the left side- you get some spectacular views of Mt Fuji. Unexpectedly those were our best views of the trip, even it was only for a short while. about 4 years ago
