Assessment

The Mt. Fuji Shizuoka Area Tourist Pass Mini is slightly awkward to use because it does not provide access to/from any airport or major city. Instead its coverage area ends just outside Tokyo and Nagoya. Nevertheless, the pass is likely to pay off for those visiting Mount Fuji in combination with other sites in Shizuoka Prefecture, such as the Izu Peninsula or Shizuoka City.
