Hi there,

The JR Pass goes not cover all transport in your itinerary, for instance you'll have to use the Fujikyu line to Fuji Five Lakes and the Nohi bus to Gujo Hachiman.

Having said that, a JR Pass can still be a very interesting option if you can cover your longer trips with it. Think of travel to Shizuoka - Nagoya - Kyoto and back to Tokyo.

We have a very handy tool at www.jrpass.com/farecalculator where you can find out exactly how much you can save on any given route.

Hope this helps,
