When traveling to Kansai (such as Osaka and Kyoto) from Lake Kawaguchi, highway buses are the top recommendation!
Not only is it extremely cheaper compared to the Shinkansen (around 7,000 ~ 8,000 Yen *In the case of Shinkansen: around 18,000 Yen), its big merit is also its accessibility being excellent.
Starting with business districts representative of Osaka such as Umeda, located in the heart of Osaka; Namba, popular with overseas tourists; and Tennoji, there are many bus stops and you can choose to alight at your preferred locations, such as the staple, popular spot of "Universal Studios Japan" and even up to "Kyoto", Japan's greatest tourist area!
Also, since there are various departure times, from early morning departures to noon liners up to midnight buses, it will be possible for you to travel in accordance with your travel schedule.
For example, after slowly enjoying a dinner at Lake Kawaguchi, you can travel to Osaka or Kyoto in a night bus in order to proceed to your next schedule from early in the morning; this enables you to have a trip where you can effectively use your important time!
If the bus code starts with an X or a Z then you can make a booking from one month in advance. For all other buses, bookings can be made between 1 and 4 months before the intended departure date.
