Kawaguchiko to Kyoto by overnight bus

Hi!

I am trying to get to Kyoto from Kawaguchiko / Mt. Fuji. So far I have found this company to be pretty good.

Fujikyu Bus Group: …fujikyu.co.jp/english/gettinghere/04.html

Get on the bus in Kawaguchiko at about 9:52 pm, and arrive at 6 am.

Has anyone ever done this before?

Also, I am leaving 1.5 weeks, how do I make a reservation for this seats / tickets (do I have to go through a travel agency)? (only contact info is for telephone)

Thanks!

Kris

It's 20:52 and 8:52PM at Kawaguchiko, not 9:52PM. When a Japanese bus timetable writes 8:52PM, it will come at 8:52PM (unless something happens on the way).

I haven't taken the bus on this route, but the company is reliable and the bus is probably 3-row seater (although I heard that they would be introducing a cheaper 4-row seater for those departing from Osaka between July and November). The person on the phone should understand basic English so if you can speak slowly word by word without heavy accentuation you might try phoning. Travel agencies in USA do the same, I think.
