Hi
I will be travelling

18 Oct Narita to Tokyo
19 Oct Tokyo to Gotemba
19 Oct Gotemba to Fujisan
20 Oct Tokyo to Nikko
21 Oct Nikko to Tokyo
22 Oct Tokyo to Kyoto
24 Oct Kyoto to Narita

Kindly inform me which will be the ideal travel card for me.

Please also inform whether there are direct trains from Nikko to Kyoto and Kyoto to Narita

Is there any direct train from Tokyo station to Gotemba and any train or bus from Gotemba to Fuji San

Is there any unlimited metro/ bus pass for Tokyo or Kyoto

Hi there,

I recommend using a 7 day JR Pass for your travels. This will cover between all the cities in the above itinerary, only for local travel around Fuji and in bigger cities is it that you still may have to buy other tickets.

There are no direct trains between Kyoto -Narita Airport and Kyoto - Nikko. Most of the time you will have to make a transfer at Tokyo station. To find the best routes, be sure to learn how to plan with Hyperdia. This way you can find all trains covered by the JRPass, route information and more.

There are different buses from Gotemba going around the Fuji area, be sure to specify first where you want to do. [Here is the route from Tokyo - Gotemba.

Hope this helps!
Daniel

Is the JR pass valid for bullet trains also? Will I require a reservation for travel between Tokyo and Kyoto/ Tokyo and Nikko?

Yes it is valid on all bullet train lines (some train services, the Nozomi/Mizuho are not included).

Reservations are not required but I do recommend making them. It makes travel a lot more relaxed.
