Allow me to post my questions and hope you can help.
1) If I buy kanto pass, do I need to pay for addition fees for travelling from Otsuki Station to Kawaguchiko Stn?
2) Do I need pay extra if I hop on and drop off any station in between Otsuki and Kawaguchiko?
3) What is meant by "Boarding Pass" and do I need pay anymore for express and other services going to 5th station.

Hi there,

To answer all your questions at once. No you don't have to pay anything extra to Kawaguchiko with the Kanto Pass.

Thank you very much Daniel San
If you could allow me to clarify if the bus to 5th station is included?

If you allow me another question using the Kanto Pass.
If I want to go to Nikko :
1) Can I use the Kanto pass to take the Tohoku Shinkasen
2) Where can I reserve seats for Nikko/Kinugawa/Tobu Skytree Limited express (I am assuming I can use Kanto pass based on information at web site)? Is it at JR East Stations.
Very sorry to trouble you but do hope you can help.

Hi again!

The 5th station is not included, this because it is not a train station but a stop/checkpoint before climbing Fuji.

The Tohoku Shinkansen is included within the coverage area. For more coverage, please see: http://www.jreast.co.jp/e/kantoareapass/#category04

You can reserve tickets at any JR station within the validity area of the pass.

Hope this helps!
