Hi there,

The most important part of your route is understanding access to Kawaguchiko. Part of the route between Otsuki and Kawaguchiko station is travelled on the Fujikyu railway company, which does not accept the JR Pass. A 1,140yen/one way per person is required here.

Going from Kawaguchiko to Kyoto using the JR Pass. Travel back to Otsuki station, from there you can use local JR lines to Tokyo station. At Tokyo you can board the Hikari Shinkansen to Kyoto.

Hope this helps,
