You could drive around the lake in search of nice view of my Fuji. Let me see if I could dig up some photos, we did a cycling trip around the 5 lakes
This is my attractions list in path following order due to driving. Im considering visiting the Chureito Pagoda on 2nd day early morning to get the best view of Mt Fuji + Pagoda when there isnt much clouds due to humidity. Oshino Hakkai may be skipped as we are heading to Hakone on 2nd day so there will already be a private onsen in our room.

Can't comment on the pass or the discount since I didn't use that pass.

I only know for the cable car trip, may want to consider buying a single trip ticket instead of round trip (if all physically fit). While trekking down the hill got some hydrangea garden. If wanna go there, might as well walk all the way down the hill liao. Then if bought round trip ticket, it would be wasted. But it's a 45 mins walk down.

The pagoda parking lot should be this one
Arakurayamaasama Koen Parking Lot
https://maps.google.com/?cid=3359922452547250672

Entry to it is single lane. If u reach the lane first, normally the other side will let u through.
If they reach the single lane 1st, u try to stay one side or reverse into somewhere to let them pass then u continue.

The windy slope between the Carpark and the pagoda, iirc, I think can drive up. But the lots there for handicap only, and idk how to gain access. Maybe can drop them then u drive down to park or smt.

Cable car round trip without discount should be 800 per pax.

Thanks, it seems to be the same open space carpark that i saw, just that it doesnt look like its for 120 cars and i cant Google Walk in. lol. Just have to take the risk and park there. I also saw in map that i can make 1 big round to the exit, wonder if other cars also do that or use the shorter route and go out from they come in.

The road is quite curvy, think better not take the risk. Going down also seems difficult as well. A 10 mins hike up should be fine for them. Alrdy recorded in my expenses excel table le. But i will just based on non discount pricing first.

Now that Kawaguchiko is settled, i need figure out the bus timing and location from Kawaguchiko to Hakone Yumoto / Togendai.

This is the plan or route that i saw online.

Wake up early to return car
Kawaguchiko to Yamanakako (35 mins via Fujikyu bus)
Yamanakako to Gotemba (40 mins via Fujikyu bus)
Gotemba to Sengoku (25 mins via Odakyu highway bus)
Sengoku to Togendai (20 mins via Hakone bus)
From here, we will start the hakone experience on the top half of circle, clockwise towards Hakone Yumoto
For kawaguchiko to Gotemba station, this route should be under Fujikyuko Bus and covered by Fuji-Hakone Pass? http://bus-en.fujikyu.co.jp/route/de...d/1/#timetable

Then from Gotemba Station to Togendai via Odakyu bus V all the way.

I'll be arriving at Narita at 830am. I have a flight to catch at Haneda at 12pm. Is that too tight? 90mins for travel from Narita to Haneda. That will give me 1hr to checkin and clear security. Or should i aim for 4 hrs in between Narita and Haneda to be safer?
