You can take the Kaiji Express train directly from Shinjuku Station to Otsuki, then take the Fujikyu Line (or express train) from Otsuki to Fujisan, and finally take a bus (about 30 minutes) from there to Yamanaka. It's worth the day trip, but if you want, you can make it a few-days trip, as there are plenty of hotels, hostels and camping grounds near the lake.
