2. We will be heading to Narita airport 2 days later. What is the best route to take from Kawaguchi Stn. to Narita airport please?
Thank you.


  • Hi Pnish,

    The easiest way to get to Kawaguchiko from Kyoto is:
    - Take the Shinkansen from Kyoto to Shin-Yokohama station
    - Take the JR Yokohama Line Local to Hachioji
    - Take the Ltd. Exp Kaiji from Hachioji to Otsuki
    - From Otsuki, take the Fujikyu Railway line to Kawaguchiko.

    *Note that the Fujikyu line is NOT a JR line and so not covered by the JR Pass.

    To get to Narita Airport from Kawaguchiko:
    - Take the Fujikyu Line from Kawaguchiko to Otsuki
    - Take the Ltd. Exp Kaiji (or Azusa) to JR Shinjuku station.
    - From Shinjuku, take the Narita Express directly to the airport.

    I hope this helps. For more information, please check out the Japanese train timetable website http://www.hyperdia.com/en/.
