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.

Mount Fuji is part of my bucket list but I can not cross it out yet since I wasn't able to climb it. I will surely go back on one summer to scale it. It's a 6 hour trek from Fifth Station. We are very lucky to have seen the full Mount Fuji because she has shown her self to... More

We climbed Fuji from the 5th station (we took a bus from the train station to the centre which was easy enough without speaking any Japanese). We climbed up during the evening, stopped at a mountain hut for some hot soup and got to the top in time to watch the spectacular sunrise. It's simply amazing, so beautiful. We were... More

We visited Mount Fuji with an organised tour. Unfortunately, the guide's accent was strong so we didn't understand a lot of the talk. We had to,stop at the visitor centre as all the higher gates were closed which was a shame, although what we could see of the mountain in the far distance looked beautiful. The centre itself is very... More

The climb of Mount Fuji was definitly the most remarkable experience i had through my Japan-trip. I would definitly recommend to plan it well though, the bus that brought me from Tokyo-Shinjuku to the 5th station (gogome) arrived way too early at 1 pm, which meant, that even though it took me 9-10 hours to reach the summit (I made...

We were blessed with a perfect day to visit Mt Fuji. The photos on postcards and in magazines just don't do it justice! It is more beautiful than one can imagine! It is best to go early before the clouds set in to get the best views. All four seasons are wonderful, in different ways, for viewing.

love this mountain a lot. It is lucky for us to see its face. If you traveled to Japan in the right season, I highly suggested you take the ropeway and up the mountain to enjoy the amazing view.

No matter how old you are, you are highly recommended to do it once: Walk up Mount Fuji to see the sun rise from there. If you are not up for queuing the whole night up a mountain - like thousands of others do, go there during the day and get a room on one of the stations and march... More

I climbed Mt Fuji last August (2015), the view from the summit was nothing spectacular compares to other mountains I climbed like Rinjani and Kinabalu. But unlike those 2 mountains, no guide, permit or booking is required, you can climb the mountain any time you want during the climbing season (July - August), it is open 24 hours a day.... More

Fuji is wonderful even in winter. Pure, white snow under sunshine is spectacular. Less crowded, more time and fresh air. Just wear warm cloths.

Overall the trip was satisfying because we saw the majestic Mt Fuji under clear blue skies. But personally I felt each stop could have been longer to make the trip less rushed. Trip was on 16 Feb and the weather was lovely. Clear blue skies and we could already see Mt Fuji on the ride to Fuji Visitor Centre. It... More
