We are planning on renting a car in Kawaguchiko to visit Fuji and sites in the area. We are keen to visit the pagoda, but I have mobility issues. I have been googling and there is a road up to the pagoda but it appears closed on google maps.
How would we go about getting access to this road in April 2020?

We too had driven there twice during the cherry blossom season in April and couldnft drive directly up the hill. We had to park at the car park shown below and hiked up those long steps.

That road is for wheelchair access. You can take a car up it. It is clearly signed. Speak to the info desk at the bottom of the hill when you arrive.

Since I wanted to ask some stuff about this and in order to avoid creating a new thread, I plan to go there without JR Pass in a 1 day trip from Tokyo, is it difficult access, worth it during early August? Note that I've already been to Fuji summit during summer 2018 and saw the sunrise there.

What do you think?

You dont need a jr pass. The train line closest isnt a jr line anyway.

I caught the train to visit it. Very easy transfer from jr to fujiku at otsuki station.
