Will be visiting Kawaguchiko on 6 Nov.
Have to travel from Namba to Kawaguchiko.
Will be taking the local trains till Shin-Osaka.
I have a bus to take form Mishima to Kawaguchiko (liner express) - 2.20pm
I have JR pass.
Tried looking at the different Shinkansen schedules.
The schedules are a little confusing but I found schedules below (if it's correct) for 6 Nov:
A) 10.48am Shin Osaka to Shizuoka (Hikari) - arrive 12.37pm. 12.57pm Shizuoka to Mishima (Kodama) - arrive 1.19pm
B) 10.54am Shin-OSaka to Mishima (Kodama) - arrive 1.49pm
The pickup of my bus from Mishima is at Mishima South exit Platform 2.
As it's our first time in Japan I have below concerns:
1) We prefer schedule A but the transfer at Shizuoka - is it at the same platform? We are worried if it's at different platform, we may take some time to find the next transfer Shinkansen and if we miss it, it's big trouble for us.
2) From Shinkansen Mishima station go to Mishima South Exit Platform 2 for bus - is it very far? Because if Schdule A is not workable, we might pick schedule B - but we only have 30mins to find the bus. And we prefer arrive earlier to ensure we have spaces for luggage compartment.
Thanks in advance!
