The trip started out bad with terrible, terrible traffic out of Tokyo and then again in the outskirts reaching Mt. Fuji. We left our hotel at 8am and ended up in our lunch site at 1pm! We didn't take the lunch option and headed for the small sandwich joint near the hotel. The food order is limited to a small box of Japanese fried chicken, corn dogs and a meat bun that wasn't too tasty. Stick with the fried chicken. Btw, my son had to take a bathroom break in between the 5 hour bus tour and the tour guide Asaku (?) stopped for him.
We were rewarded though with the beautiful view of Mt. Fuji. At least Mt. Fuji decided to show her beauty which I didn't get to experience in my first visit 2010. We had to cancel our trip to Komagatake Ropeway, Lake Ashi and Hakone trip because of the traffic delay. Instead we did a short cruise in Lake Kawaguchiko and did the Kachi Kachi Ropeway. The view was magnificent there. I would still recommend the trip because the traffic is not caused by the driver and tour guide anyway:-)
