A trip log from Friday April 17, 2015 features a bus trip out to Mt. Fuji.
Had a 6am wake up call this morning. A quick check of the weather then we were on our way to Bayside Station around 7am. Took the Resort Line to the Resort Gateway and transferred to a JR line train to Tokyo Central and experienced Tokyo Rush Hour. At the central station transferred to another train and made our way to the Hamamatsucho Bus Terminal for our 9am departure. We spent most of the day on the bus tour. It took almost two hours from Tokyo to Mt. Fuji visitor center. Once there had 20 minutes to look around the back on the bus and we traveled up to the 4th Station of Mt. Fuji which is as far as the road was open. Hopped out in the cold and took a couple pictures then back on the bus and down the mountain. Headed to Lake Ashi for a brief cruise across the lake (15 min) and then on the bus again and a cable car ride up to Owakudani. We had about 20 minutes to look around and were finally able to see Mt. Fuji. Then it was back on the bus for a little over an hour to Odawara Station where we boarded Shinkansen (bullet train) bound for Tokyo. At Tokyo Central transferred to the local line to head for Disney. Grabbed dinner at TGI Fridays then took the Resort Line to Bayside Station and returned to the Hilton just after 9pm to call it a night and wrap up our last full day of the trip.
