Hi, does anyone know where I can buy a Koyasan Heritage ticket from? I will be travelling to Koyasan from Kyoto. Not planning on visiting Osaka but have to change trains there on the way to Namba for Koyasan. Will I be able to buy the ticket at Osaka station then? Or is there anywhere in Kyoto I can buy it from? Or can I just buy it at Namba subway station?
I've also been looking at the Fuji Hakone Pass. Again, can anyone tell me where in Tokyo I could buy this from? Is it worthwhile? I…
I'm planning a 2 week trip to Japan from the 25th of June to the 9th of July and would like some feedback and suggestions please. I'm think of:

My family and I are planning our 2nd trip to Japan.
We have already visited Tokyo, Hiroshima, Miyajima, Osaka, Koyasan, Kyoto, Nara, Kanazawa and Takayama the first time.
This time around we are planning to go back to some places we really loved (Tokyo, Miyajima and Kyoto) and add a few more destinations (Nagoya, Mt. Fuji/Kawaguchiko and Kamakura for sure). We will be going in February, so I am aware of the fact that it will be cold and not all areas will be easily accessible…
