I was given to understand that there is a hourly inter-city bus service from Shinjuku bus station but haven’t found any information. Can you confirm and share schedule/cost. Are there local buses in Fuji 5 Lakes area to get around viewing spots?
After this stay we will travel to Kyoto via JR Pass (activating from here) - what’s the nearest JR Station?
Just wondering if I should rent a car instead to travel to the Lakes area and to visit scenic spots in the area? Does Google Maps work well in this area?
