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. « less

Visited Mount Fuji on a whole day tour and it was spectacular. We had a clear view of the mountain despite November not being climbing season. Its always best to check the weather too before you book a tour so you are not disappointed if you don't get to see it clearly.

What would have cost us nearly $800 for four people (two adults and two children), cost us $234 and we had a great time. It wasn't that hard since we were already staying in... More

Was disappointed. We also didn't managed to take the cable car ride as the winds were too strong. We visited a museum in lieu of... More

As far as I know, there are two ways to approach Fuji. One way is to take the Shinkansen and go to the area knows as Fujinomiya, from this area you can appreciate Mt Fuji. The other way is the one I took, from Tokyo take the trains to the Fuji five lakes, Kawaguchiko station. This area is very nice... More
