Hi there,

I am afraid that it is a really long and complicated route, 7 ours of travel sounds about right with many transfers.

Using the JR Pass, you would travel as follows: Takayama - Nagoya - Shin-Yokohama - Hachioji - Otsuki - Kawaguchiko. The JR Pass covers all expect for the last part Otsuki - Kawaguchiko.

Here is an example in Hyperdia.

Hope this helps,
