Train and bus are equally good - it depends on your preference and budget. All the details of how to get from Narita to Shinjuku are here - you can choose what suits you best.

You can get a bus to Kawaguchiko Fifth Station from Shinjuku. All the details are on this page:

Please also read this page about safety and climbing Mount Fuji to make sure you are properly prepared, especially with boots and clothes:

No-one can tell you exactly which trains and buses to catch, or which hotel to stay in. That all depends on your personal timetable, budget and how you like to travel.

Please use the information given to you in answer to your other post, and the links provided above to make your plans.

Alternatively, if you feel that you can't work out how to do that, perhaps you could contact a Japan travel agent in your own country who would be able to book all your travel and hotels for you - and perhaps even book you onto an organised hike.
