      See Hanten’s reply above. Since he/she didn’t reply to you directly, you probably didn’t get a notification.

  2. Hi, this Friday 15/2/26 I will go to Fuji-Q Highland, but I am a bit confused about buying the Toku-Q Pack (free pass + bus) tickets online. In the web https://www.fujiq.jp/en/qpack/, it’s mentioned that a packaged deal with a Fuji-Q Highland pass and roundtrip Express Bus bus ticket from Shinjuku all in one costs 6,700 yen/adult. However when I try to make internet reservations, the final cost for roundtrip bus alone is 3500 yen/adult. There are no information about free pass. Can someone help explaining to me about this problem?

      Hey Siska, This might be a bit late for you, but I tried to sign up using the link but I wasn’t able to check without completing the booking. I think they just have the wrong link. I looked around the Highway Bus site but that pass page seems to be hidden. This isn’t unusual in Tokyo – a lot of companies do a poor job of serving foreign tourists and residents.
