Hi there,

This is one hell of a route, as its quite long and involved many transfers. From Kawaguchiko by rail: see this route.

There is an alternative by taking the bus from Kawaguchi-ko to Mishima station and use the Shinkansen from there. Sometimes this route is faster but the bus between Kawaguchiko and Mishima is not included and the time difference is quite small.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi there,

Yes, a Nobi Nobi seat is covered by the JR Pass but seats are sold out very quickly sometimes, so be sure to make a reservations once you arrive in Japan.
