Could you please advise for the appropriate JR pass (I plan to buy JR Tokyo Wide Pass) for my trip to Kawaguchiko and to travel in Tokyo on 24-29 Nov included Narita Express. However please give me for more details of the "LTD. EXP FUJISAN MARATHON" especially how to reserve and buy the ticket of this train before 27Nov.

Thank you in advance

Hi there,

Is this the only trip outside of Tokyo you plan to do? In that case, I would just buy a normal rail ticket to Fuji-san. You can buy a ticket at any station (it is not possible to do so online).

Alternatively, you could use a Tokyo Wide Pass.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
