Using Fuji Hakone Pass on Fujikyu Railway 2019/3/20 19:05
Hi,

I'm intending to make 2 separate day trips to Hakone and Fuji area (from Tokyo), and I've pretty much decided to get the Fuji Hakone Pass from Odawara, I feel that it will complement my JR Rail Pass nicely.

However, I noticed that the Fuji Hakone Pass is only valid on Fujikyu Railway between Kawaguchiko and Shimoyoshida stations only. What happens then, if I try to go beyond Shimoyoshida to Otsuki? Will I be able to do a fare adjustment at Otsuki, or will I have to get off at Shimoyoshida and pay for a ticket back to Otsuki (either by cash or SUICA)? I'm okay with paying the fare for Shimoyoshida-Otsuki, I'm just wondering about the logistics of it.

Thanks in advance!

Better off with separate daily passes if doing two separate day trips.

By separate trips, do you mean something like Tokyo - Hakone - Tokyo - Fujigoko - Tokyo? I think Fuji-Hakone Pass will still pay off even with that route due to numerous means of transportation you will use in Hakone and Fuji area.

What happens then, if I try to go beyond Shimoyoshida to Otsuki?

To get on Fujikyu Railway trains, you will need to buy a ticket in cash (you cannot tap your IC card for this one).

If you show your Fuji-Hakone Pass to the station staff, you might only need to pay for the fare of the stations that aren't covered by the Pass (I can't confirm this because I forgot to show my Fuji-Hakone Pass and ended up paying the whole fare from Kawaguchiko to Otsuki).
