Mt Fuji Day Tour - Is it worth it?

Hi All,

My husband and I are visiting Kyoto and Tokyo in June this year. We will be staying in Tokyo for 3 nights (around 2 and a half days for sight seeing). Is it worth doing the Mt Fuji day tour to go up to 5th station? I am wary as this is an all day thing, and I don't want to miss out on other sights with the litre time we have...

Thanks

NON MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS:

AVOID FUJI 5th STATION AT ANY COST.

I understand the passion of mountain climbers who want to put a flag and climb the peak. For them its propably worth going. However, for the rest of us I STRONGLY ADVICE NOT WASTING TIME AND MONEY AND STAY IN TOKYO!

2 tickets to Japan: 2250 EUR

Hotel 6 nights: 500 EUR

2 Tickets to Fuji: 80 EUR

Other expenses:1000 EUR

------------////_____

Total: 3,830 EUR. Daily~ c.a 640 EUR

The day I LOST in Fuji therefore costs me 640 EUR... Plus my time-the lost day I could use for Tokyo sightseeing.

Take my advice AVOID FUJI AT ANY COST. THERE IS NOTHING THERE TO SEE. ITS UGLY, CROWDED AND HARD TO GET TO!

If under pressure by companion, pay him the trip but beg to be left alone you will save money and time.

^^^AGREE^^^

The place looks like the dry landscape of Mars but A LOT more crowded. Definitely not worth it.
