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.

We booked a Mount Fuji/ Hakone day trip from our Tokyo hotel as our time was limited. Pick up was well organised, punctual, and simple to do. We had an English speaking guide who pointed out the sights en route, and advised that snow still covered the high mountain slopes , so we would stop at a lower point. We... More

When I first met the Fuji Montain, the vulcano, its was inside the Bullet Train to Kyoto. Its really beautiful and impressive. So, you can go to the botton of the Fuji getting a train at Tokyo station. Its very touristic.

Every minute of the (short) trip from Tokio to the holy mountain is worth it! With its snow crown the mountain stands tall in beautiful nature. 5 Lakes in the surroundings, each of them offering beautiful views. Just stunning and a must see for any Japan traveller.

There's no doubt this is a very lovely and picturesque mountain. However, chances are you will never fully see it (don't believe the photos of the guided tours - they were shot under optimal conditions). Take some time to visit the visitors' center and then head for the 5th station. Having said that, I feel the mountain is somewhat overrated,... More

Breathtaking view, and freezing cold at 5th Station. Better bring appropriate jacket. Full of tourist, but yet very tranqui and peaceful. At 5th Station, there will be plenty of tourist and it takes 45 minutes from Kawaguchiko station to reach there. The tip of the mountain looks close, and covered with snow. The air is clean, and all kind of... More

Really very very nice. Went there today, 2 hours from Tokyo by bus. Walked around the lake and shoot the lake, boats, mountains around and of course the Fujiyama. Very peaceful and beautiful. Highly recommended!

Pick up central location and easy to find. Staff helpful with very good English. Comfortable transport. Despite the poor weather impacting on access to the 5th station of Mt fuji (risk of a avalance closed access)all other activities went ahead.food wasnt to my liking but i can be picky! Traditional options and attentive hotel staff. very good guide who provided... More

We took the day tour from our hotel in Tokyo. This involved a coach tour to view from a distance Mount Fuji. Everybody was delighted with the tour. We saw mount Fuji from a distance and for most of the day was obliterated by cloud. But our patience was rewarded and managed to see the peak on a couple of... More
