It that right, to go Kanazawa to Kawaguchiko? I get that as a several hour trip. Personally I wouldnt, I thought Kawaguchiko was not somewhere I would go to twice though Mt Fuji was impressive close up. I think you'd be going very far out of your way for not a lot of benefit.

Consider as an alternative Kanazawa to Shirakawa and on to Takayama for a night or two (maybe a night in one of the onsen towns around there) then stop at Hikone (not Hakone) on the way back to Osaka. I would recommend the Hikone Castle View resort as a nice hotel in Hikone.
