Hello Ignazio,

I recommend using a 14 day JR Pass for your itinerary. This because you plan to do a lot of travel, especially Kyoto, Hiroshima and Nikko can cost a lot without a JR Pass. You could use it from the 25th - 7th Nov. For the best savings.

Hope this helps and let me know if there's anything you'd like help with!
Daniel

While you have to purchase the JR Pass, all travel between the areas you wish to travel is included.

You may however still have to use local transport at times, such as in the Hakone Region that is not included.

Look at the Hakone Free Pass for travel within Hakone.

To travel from Kawaguchiko - Kyoto, means going back to Tokyo by the same route and then using the Shinkansen from Tokyo to Kyoto. I really would recommend visiting Hakone instead, as travel from there is much easier to Kyoto.

If your prime goal is to view Fuji, then Hakone is very nice as well. It is a bit further away from Fuji but the view is just as grand!
