Hi there! Myself and 3 others are planning a trip to Japan. We are spending the first week in Tokyo, and then plan on driving to Hakone near Mount Fuji to stay at a spa resort for 2 nights, and then driving down to Osaka to spend another 5 days. I know that most people recommend the train for the journey from Tokyo->Osaka, however we really wanted to experience the Mt Fuji region, and it seems difficult to get around with public transport especially if we want to go sightseeing and have lots of suitcases. The price of the car hire including one-way fee, petrol, and tolls, does not seem much more than the train option. Would anyone reccomend this or have any other advice? We will be travelling back from Osaka to Tokyo via train (not by car) so will not need to repeat this journey.
