Hakone and Fuji Five Lakes 2018/1/22 22:01

I'm planning on spending 2 nights in the Fuji Five Lakes area. I'm thinking of staying in Hakone rather than the Lakes as I'd like to stay in a Ryokan and experience an osen. I know there is a Hakone pass and I've seen there's also a combo Fuji Hakone pass - however as I will be buying a JR Pass, I do not need to Tokyo transfer options it includes. Is there an option to buy a cheaper Fuji Hakone pass which just includes the local transport which I understand is not covered by the JR pass and the perks of the discounted entry to attractions.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Departing from Odawara is the local only version.

Just a side note to your plans. Kawaguchiko/Fuji 5 LAkes is 2-3 hours from Hakone by bus. Factor this into your plans if you plan on only using hotels in the Hakone area.

Thanks so much for your reply. I did not realise it was such a great distance away - from the snippets I read online I had it as an hour or so away. I will revise my plan to stay an addional night in the Fuji Lakes area, perhaps staying in the Lake Kawaguckio area for that additional night?? That should mean I can get the full three days use of the Fuji-Hakone pass too. Thanks again for the advice!
