The clock is ticking away towards my trip to Tokyo on May 5th! I'm still figuring out the non-Disney days.
My friend and I are planning on purchasing the 3-day JR Kanto pass to cover our travel expenses from TDR, (we're staying at the Hilton) and heading to the Fujikawaguchiko area for a day. Unfortunately, because Kawaguchiko Station is almost 3 hours away one way and everything will have to coordinate with the various bus schedules, we're only going to be able to hit two major area sights. Here is where I'm hitting some roadblocks.
The first, which is really a must, is the Fuji Shibazakura Moss Festival, which looks completely stunning. The other is a trip/hike to the Fifth Station.
Here's my main question for those of you familiar with the area: Is it really possible that the final Fujisan shuttle bus from the Fifth Station back to Kawaguchiko station is only at 3:30PM? Because of the departure times of the buses from all 3 locations, I am finding it impossible to be able to make it to both attractions on the same day without making one of the visits incredibly short. I was basing my travels off the bus schedules HERE (for the Fujisan) and HERE (for the festival).
Does anyone know any sort of alternative option we could do so that we could see both these locations in the same day?
