Transport from Mt. Fuji Area to Owakudani

Asked by Victoria Vlisides · 3 years ago

Do you know if there is a nifty bus or something that goes toward Owakudani in Kanagawa from Kawaguchiko area/Fuji area? The train route looks pretty messy and inconvenient. Thanks!

Yes, there is a bus from Gora (the station close to the Owakudani) that goes to Gotemba outlet, then from there to Fujiyoshida, I think Kawaguchiko station.
When I did it in 2012, I used the 3 days Odakyu free pass, that icluded all the transport (train, bus, boat, ropway) in the area. If I remember correctly, the return to Tokyo  from Fujiyshida was by bus.
However, on the Odakyu website, the pass seems to only include the Gotemba/Hakone part. Maybe it changed since I did it, so it might be an idea to ask at the Odakyu info desk in Shinjuku (where you can buy the pass) if there is still a version that goes up to Fujiyoshida.

Bus to and from fujiyoshida :

If you go before the end of March, there is a Doraemon stamp rally (stamp rally is the best thing in Japan) :
