Where can I find cheap travel, between Kyoto and Shizuoka?

Sosuke Kimura Sosuke Kimura, Living in Japan

There may be plans exclusively for travelers from overseas like JR Pass, but I do not know the certainty.As far as I know, I think that the bus is the cheapest.

do i need to speak japanese

Sosuke Kimura Sosuke Kimura, Living in Japan

No you don't. If you can speak English, many  Japanese can understand easy English words.Communicate with written language, it makes most Japanese easier to understand than spoken language.I think the number of international visitors has increased recently but most of them do not speak Japanese.
