How to use bullet train from osaka to Lake Kawaguchi


I am first time travelling to Japan and i am stay at the Plaza Osaka before going to stay the Kosuien hotel near Lake Kawaguchi.
I would like to ask is it possible to use the bullet train to go from OSAKA to Lake Kawaguchi?

Thanks for the reply.


Hi there,

Kawaguchiko is not directly located on the Shinkansen you can use the bullet train from Osaka to Tokyo and use local trains from there to Kawaguchiko. Here is an example route.

An other alternative is to use the Shinkansen from Osaka to Mishima station and take the bus from there. The bus unfortunately not covered by the JR Pass so it is better to travel via Tokyo.

Hope this helps!
