My family and I (with 2 kids aged 8 and 9) are travelling to Tokyo at the end of September. We’re thinking of doing a day trip to Mt Fuji as the kids want to see a snow-capped mountain. Questions - 1) will the mountain be snow-capped at that time? 2) we want to take the Ochudo trail just so we can say we’ve walked on Mt Fuji - will this be open? 3) what is the best way to get to Mt Fuji from Shinjuku? 4) instead of going to the 5th station, is it better to go to the five lakes instead? 5) is it even worth going to Mt Fuji during the off season?
