How about seeing Kyoto by Taxi ?

Japanese Version

If you want to enjoy sightseeing , we recommend you to use a taxi. That way , you can save time and see more temples and shrines than with other transportations.

Although we offer services mainly in Kyoto and Nara, we can take you to Mt. Fuji if you wish.. You will need to stay overnight because Mt. Fuji is far from Kyoto.
