I will be heading to the outlet with a few girlfriends in a week's time. I am not keen in the outlet but my girlfriends are. So I am thinking of spicing the trip up by staying a night in the area, renting a car and driving around after the shopping. I have no idea which area I should drive to after the outlet and what is the best area to stay? View of Mt Fuji combined with some local sights will be awesome. Or a quaint little town with onsen. Am okay to return to our airbnb in Shinjuku the next evening.
Any routes suggestion is welcomed. I am doing my own research now too.
Thank you for your help :)
