Hi - Would appreciate information on our Mt. Fuji day trip.
We will be staying at Shibuya and will be getting the JR Kanto Pass. How to I travel from Shibuya to Mt. Fuji Kawaguchico Station using the JR Kanto Pass? I know I still need to get bus tickets in Kawaguchico so I could see Mt. Fuji and Lake Kawaguchico. What I don't know is getting to Kawaguhico Station from Shibuya. Do I still need to buy other tickets even if I have the JR Kanto Pass? Also, where can I see the train schedule going to Kawaguchico Station.

Many thanks for the help.

Thank you Daniel-san!

Is it worthwhile getting on the Holiday Rapid Mt Fuji train or is the Kaiji Ltd Express + Fujkyu better? I'm thinking there's a lot more flexibility with the Kaiji (more trains?)

One more thing that I still don't get... if on the Kaiji it says "Reserved seats" how do I go about reserving seats? Can I do it ahead of time like on the Shinkansen, or should I go to a machine at the station? Sorry... n00b question...

Thanks!

Kiko

Hi Kiko,

Either way is fine, you can use the Kanji or other trains. I would suggest finding the route that best suites your time table and go with that :)

To make seat reservations, go to a manned JR Desk at a station and tell the staff that you wish to make a seat reservation. They will then print the tickets for you :)

Hope this helps!
Daniel
