Visit Kawaguchiko using KEIO train line 2018/12/13 13:47
Hello, please help my confusion

Using Gmap, we can find that from Shinjuku to Kawaguchiko, can be travel via Train KEIO,
the KEIO will stop in Takao, and transfer to Chuo local line
And will arrive in Otsuki.
From there can change to Fujikyu Rail to Kawaguchiko
Shinjuku => Takao => Otsuki => Kawaguchiko

And the train cost only JPY 940 from Shinjuku to Otsuki, which is a bargain cheapo.
From Otsuki, we can continue with Fujikyu Rail which is covered by Fujisan Fujikyu Pass.

This is more okay compare to take Bus Highway route to Kawaguchiko?

Is this Route analysis correct ? Please help to answer as I am newbie here.

Yes, you can go from Shinjuku to Takao with Keio, and yes it is cheaper than JR. Compared to the bus, it obviously has transfers, and may also be slower.

Thanks for the answer,

Please advise to choose between
A. Take bus from Shinjuku using Fujigoko Enjoy with return trip

B. Take Keio to Takao, change Chuo to Otsuki, and then take Fujikyu Rail

Which is more economical?
However option B seems will have more transfer, with Luggage is troublesome ?

Economical or convenient? There is a trade-off.

Personally, I would never use Keio for a journey like that when the JR trains run to Otsuki frequently and some run direct all the way to Kawaguchiko. But then I would used one of the reserved/express train serves as well.

Many people use the bus - that is why the bus companies are in business.
