Is Shuzenji far from Tokyo and other major cities?
No.It is much closer than you think .It takes less than 2 hours from Tokyo and 4 hours from Oosaka(shinkansen Hikari is used). There are several ways to come to Shuzenji such as the direct train "Izu Odoriko"from Tokyo station and bus from shinjyuku station,too.However, it is the best to come to Mishima then change to Izu Hakone line as there are many trains running so that the connection of trains is very smoothly done. Moreover, you can enjoy the view of Mt,Fuji and local scenery from the train.
It is good experience for you .For example, arriving at Shuzenji station for the tour (11:00am start), you get on shinkansen at Tokyo station at 9:03am,arriving at Mishima at 9:47.Then change the train to Izu Hakone Like, leaving Mishima at 10:17,arriving at Shuzenji at 10:57am.For return to Tokyo, the train from either Izu Nagaoka or Numazu
are frequently run to Mishima then you take shinkansen to Tokyo .
This is the current timetable so this can be changed.
