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.

As we were on a tight schedule, we could not find the time to do a complete visit to Mount Fuji (plus being from Scotland I only really wanted a picture). To get an amazing photo and travel the Shinkansen (Bullet Train) then I highly recommend taking the Bullet Train to Shin Fuji, not only will you see Mount Fuji... More

I joined a JTB Sunrise Tour group leaving Tokyo at 9am and returning around 7am. The view was stunning although cloudy so we were really lucky that the cloud shifted for a few mins so we could see this beautiful iconic view! Wonderful.

We had booked to travel to Japan for a few months.. We were going to book a day trip to Mount Fuji but were told by lots of web sites that the mountain is covered 90% of the time in cloud, mist or haze... So we held off and checked the weather forecast when we arrived in Tokyo and booked... More

My friend and I rented a car and drove out for the day. It was a bit overcast while we were there, but it added a great element every time Mt. Fuji would come out from behind the clouds. Going up to stage 5 gave us a great view of the summit and the beginning/end of the road to the... More

Mount Fuji was so beautiful. We caught a bus to lake kawaguchiko and enjoyed the Mount Fuji cookies, out on the lake in a swan shaped paddle boat and took the gondola up to a viewing platform where we enjoyed some rice dumplings and had our photo professionally taken.

We went up Mount Fuji just after the regular season closed. That meant all lodges and toilets on the way were closed. And also, as we just used public transport, we had to plan quite ahead to do this as a day hike. Coming from Tokyo station we took an early Shinkansen to Shin Fuji. From Shin Fuji we had... More

I came to Japan in July 2015 to work and visit my friends. They told me: "You can climbing the Mt Fuji!!! Because is summer season." After this advice, I climbed. It's the best experience of my life. Definitely. Everyone needs to go! It's amazing place to see the nature: clouds, sun, rain, warm, cold, ice, wind, sky, panorama view... More

Visited during autumn season, temperature was 5 degree Celsius. I forgot to bring gloves and my palms were freezing cold. Great view!
