Kawaguchiko 5th Station 2013/1/27 23:18
hi
i am quite confused betweem kawaguchi station and kawaguchi 5th station.

On the net, i saw the bus from shinjuku terminal is to Kawaguchi 5th Station. Is this correct station to get to kachi kachi rope way to the nearest observation deck (where there is a Rabbit figurine)? if yes, wow far to kachi kachi ropeway? walking distance or bus?

many thanks
mei leng

The 5th Station is halfway up Mount Fuji. Nowhere near the rabbit ropeways. You should go to Kawaguchiko Station and take a retro bus from there. Alternativelt it is possible to walk there as explained here:

Note that the Kachi Kachi Ropeway is closed for maintenance from Jan 15 to Feb 8 this year.
