Traveling from Osaka to Tokyo - best view of Mt. Fuji?

Traveling from Osaka to Tokyo - best view of Mt. Fuji?

Hello, hope everyone is well! We will be leaving on Monday morning from Koyasan (Osaka) going back to Tokyo. We have a JR Rail Pass. If the weather is clear, we were hoping to find somewhere to stop along the way to take pictures of Mt. Fuji. Would you have a recommendation for where we could stop? I've tried to Google it online and some people are saying Shin-Fuji station. Does that work with the JR Rail Pass on the Shinkasen?

Thanks so much for any help!

Koyasan to Tokyo is a long journey involving a few transfer. I don't recommend stopping anywhere. If the weather is clear, you'll see Mt. Fuji (nice close up view) from the Shinkansen. Book seats D and E if you have ordinary passes, and seats C and D if Green passes.

Thanks so much for your reply! Do you think we will be able to take pictures from inside the train?

If we are going to stop, is Shin-Fuji the best station to do so? It looks like maybe only the Kodama Shinkasen stops there? Thank you again for any help!

You can see Mt. Fuji for about 15 minutes from inside the Shinkansen. You have plenty of time to take many pictures.

Shin-Fuji is a great station fo view Mt. Fuji but only Kodama trains stop there so it'll slow you way down.
