Takayama - Mt Fuji

Hi all,

I have plan to Takayama (shirakawago)- Mt Fuji (Kawaguchiko), I have few questions need you to advise.

1.From Takayama to Mount Fuji, please advise the faster way to arrive. I have refer goggle map, I saw the BUS and shinkansen is almost the same price and timing.

  1. We have rent a car for mount Fuji trip, so where should I collect car? The car rental company offer me to collect car at Gotemba or Fuziyoshida outlet. If take bus from Nagoya to Mount Fuji, so which one is more convenient for us to collect the car

Hope you can help me as I m so worry for the long journey travel, my friends complaint if take too complicated way for the trip.


Hello there,

This is indeed a rather long and complicated trip - even if they look close on the map. This because there's no direct transport between Takayama and the Fuji Area.

Personally I'd take the train to Gotemba, the route looks like this.

Hope this helps,
