Mt. Fuji is located 100 km (60 miles) west away from Tokyo. It takes two hours drive usually if the traffic is smooth.
We have some points to enjoy the view of Mt. Fuji actually but for tourists there are two spots in terms of convenient transportation.
One is Lake Kawaguchi side. The most popular way to get there is by bus. It starts from Shinjuku highway bus terminal called Busta to Lake Kawaguchi station.
This costs 1,750 yen per head.
