Overview
More
Four routes, each divided into ten sections by stopping and refueling stations, lead up to Mt. Fuji's snow-covered tip. You don't have to be a die-hard mountaineer to climb Mt. Fuji; the slopes are full of children and adults of all ages, shapes, and sizes. The official climbing season only runs from the beginning of July to the end of August, but you can take the train from Toyko to the fifth station any season.

Booked the Mount Fuji Golden tour via Japanican.com. I liked how the tour schedule was packed with visit at the Mt. Fuji 5th station, Oshino Hakkai ponds/village, Shiraito Falls, and the Fujisan Shrine, with around 30-40 minutes allotted free time on each site. It could...More

Mt Fuji is so amazing. But be sure to wear proper hiking boots, sunscreen, and take plenty of water and it’s expensive up there! My friends are I took sandwiches from seven eleven down by Kawaguchiko Station. Carry your own bags, definitely share the weight....More

This is a relatively easy climb with a guide but there are some things to know before you go. Take your own water. You can buy this and snacks at various huts on the way up but it is horrendously expensive. Expect a lot of...More

It is surreal.. I visited Fuji San 2 weeks ago and it was an awe-inspiring moment. Mt. Fuji towers over all other mountains like it's floating on a cloud. In the beginning, it was completely covered in clouds. However, once the clouds cleared, the view...More

Very long bus journey here from Shinjuku but worth the wait. When we got to the 5th station Fuji was completely covered in clouds, much to our disappointment. However, the sky’s cleared for 20 minutes or so to expose a stunning, snow-covered mountain. Great experience.

It was cold but it was worth seeing (lucky the clouds weren’t blocking the view). The view of Mount Fuji was great. There were some souvenir shops and food stalls. If you want to go the toilet, it’s better to go down the stairs, since...More

There is a place called Fuji-Q Highland Ice Skating Amusement Park that has Mt Fuji in the background for photos. Go to the website yamanashi-kankou jp for more information.
