u can search on hyperdia to see wat is the earliest train.
for example, first train from umeda to tanimachi 4 chrome (for osaka castle) will reach at 5:15
http://www.hyperdia.com/en/cgi/en/se...d&sum_target=7

where in kawaguchiko do u plan to catch sunrise?
Ah great, thanks I'll check out Hyperdia for the train schedule.
Aside, was thinking to get this shot or this. Will be staying at Lakeland Mizunosato

Any idea?

the first pic is taken from chureito pagoda. u need to check if there are early trains to shimoyoshida station. and also check with the area is open before sunrise.

the second pic is taken from the northern shore of lake kawaguchi. if the bus doesnt start so early, u may want to walk over from ur accom.

lake kawaguchi is north of mt fuji. i got feeling u will not be able to get a sunrise shot with mt fuji. u may want to rent a car and drive to other lakes on the western side of mt fuji.

Did some further digging and it seems 2nd picture was taken from Arakurayama Sengen Park. I'll check out the train schedule to the nearest station. Thanks for the information!

arakuyama sengen park and chureito pagoda is the same place, and that is the first pic. 2nd pic with mt fuji in background and lake in front is likely somewhere in the northern part of lake kawaguchi, so it is possible to be oishi park as mentioned by shadow84

Asking on behalf of colleague, if she wanna head to Kawaguchiko only, is there any pass similar to Hakone pass? The closest i can find is Mt Fuji pass but it does not include any transport from Tokyo to Kawaguchiko. Also, it comes in 1 day pass only which seems not worth if wanna stay. 2 days pass is at 8000 yen which is same price as Fuji-Hakone pass.
I used tokyo wide pass but i went to other place since pass is 3 days.

Did anyone use before hakone luggage transport service to deliver your luggage to hotel? Is it reliable?

And my friend suggested me to get sucia card. Said that can be even use in supermarket. Is that true?

I would think so.
Easier to get ard in Tokyo coz many signs in English and ppl can speak a bit of English.
Once u are comfortable with the train system, u can explore further.
One week will be good for a start

Not a must. If you have good direction sense, it is not a problem to visit many cities where many foreigners go.
