yes. i hate organized tours and, given japan, it was particularly robotic. it's an expensive tour, too. when you figure there are 50 ppl on the bus, they must make an absolute shitton on this crape.

several companies run the exact same tour. they're all going to be the same quality and standards and professional because japan isn't ghetto.

I assume your tour took you up to 5th station. Did it also take you to the kachi kachi ropeway or to Hakone?

yes, it was the full day tour with all those other stops. hakone is beautiful.

you dont have that much time at each stop on these tours. that's the main problem with them. you're spending half the time at lunch breaks and at gift shops or waiting for proles to get their asses on the bus after bathroom breaks.

too bad japan is so expensive; in some third world shithole u can just get a private driver for the day for cheap.

If you could do it over, would you visit the 5th station and those other places in one day yourself via bus/train?

Ive looked into those tours and they seem expensive. Iím wondering how feasible it is do visit these places in one day myself without a tour

there are probably posts out there on travel sites that lay out how they did that---i'm sure its possible

i'm not a big fan of guided tours, either

i dont think it's any way possible to do all that yourself in one day.

5th station only in a day? i dunno even how easy that is.

you'd have to look on LP thorntree forums for DIY guys

Yeah, thats what I figured. Theres a bus that goes directly from Tokyo to the 5th station, but i would need to figure out how to get to Hakone and the other places. Is the 5th Station even worth visiting in your opinion?

eh, i'd skip it if you only have a few days in japan/tokyo. i've been several times to japan and i thought it'd be cool to see. maybe a prole tell, but sometimes i like seeing famous shit just bc it's famous and iconic, so i wanted to see it. weather was mediocre and we didnt even have a great view. mtn came out for a little bit, thankfully.

I have about 7 days there and looking into day trips. Thought i could do a Mt Fuji/Hakone trip, but it sounds like this isnít really feasible using public transportation

you have to either suck it up and go on a group tour, or just go by yourself to 5th station only probably, or skip it entirely
