Hi there,

You have make a good start in planning your itinerary. The JR Pass will get you almost everywhere.

Some are some suggestions / tips I have for you.

For arrival at Nagoya Airport, there is no JR station near the airport, which means that you will first have to make your way to Nagoya station using the Meitetsu railways. A full access map can be found here. The JR Pass can then be activated and Nagoya station, from where bullet trains directly visit Kyoto. You should reserve about 2H for the entire trip, including activating the JR Pass.

Hamamatsucho is close to both Shinagawa and Tokyo stations, from where Shinkansen depart. The route will take about 3 hours.

For Fuji, there are different areas around Fuji you can visit. I can tell you the best route if you let me know where around Fuji you wish to visit.

The JR Pass can be used to explore most of Tokyo. I would advise familiarizing yourself with the JR Yamanote loop line. This train line makes a circle through greater Tokyo and stops and many important stations.

Hope this helps,

Thank you so much Daniel-san for your reply and great info.
Regarding Fujiyama. I would like to visit mount Fuji 5th station,
Travel to top of Mt Komagatake and get fantastic views of the Owakudani volcanic valley, Lake Ashi and Mt Fuji.
How long is the journey from hamamatsucho station to mt Fuji? Which
Transport to use? Is it worth going on my own or just joint the local
Day tour package?

I may visit gotemba premium outlet on a separate day if the journey
is easy to go and can make use of my JR Pass.
