Kyoto To Gotemba To Tokyo


I was wondering if someone could give me advice on getting from Kyoto to Gotenba then back to Tokyo. I will have a JR Pass to get to Gotenba but it will expire when I need to get back to Tokyo.

Thanks everyone!



Hi there,

Here is an example itinerary for Kyoto - Gotemba. The best route depends on what time of day you travel, be sure to check with JR Staff before departure.

Here is the train route between Gotemba and Tokyo.

There are also express buses traveling between Tokyo and Gotemba, this may most less than rail travel.

Hope this helps,
