  1. The Fuji Excursion is run by two railway companies: JR East and Fuji Kyuko. The Japan Rail Pass will cover the cost of the Fuji Excursion route between Shinjuku and Otsuki.

  5. Hello there, 1) The Super Hakuto is covered by the Kansai WIDE Area Pass as well as other limited expresses. However, Ōhara Station (Okayama) is the last stop inside the Kansai WIDE Area Pass' area, so you will need to pay the rest of the fare after that. 2) How to get to Yura Station would be different depending on the date and time. So please use "Timetable and Route Search" on http://www.hyperdia.com/en/. 3) If you are traveling all over Japan, The Japan Rail Pass might be useful too. Check this article for further infomation: https://www.japanstation.com/japan-rail-pass-discounted-travel-on-japan-railways/ These pages also have very detailed information about Kansai WIDE Area Pass and Sanyo-San'in Area pass.
