Drive up to Mt Fuji Fifth Station. Watch out for cyclists though. Lots of buses and very low speed limit of 40 kph. Its closed to private vehicles in winter though. Nice views at 3rd and 4th station

Good to take the Subaru line to 5th station further up the mountain where you can get an appreciation for how big the mountain really is. Be aware of changing weather - best visited early in the day to have the chance of clear views.
