This was one of the high lights of our trip and don't think words can say what it was like, the views were stunning and my kids enjoyed it very much even with all the walking.
After all of Man's innovations, there really is nothing quite so humbling as Nature's masterpieces. We drove up to the 5th Station via the Subaru Line, which was a very pleasant way to go up. We didn't manage to do much climbing from thereon, as it was getting late and we had dinner reservations. Nevertheless, beautiful experience. We caught the... More
We visited Mount Fuji and did some touring around the area. It's a beautiful mountainous region with lakes and gorgeous terrain for sunsets. We found that the buses were extremely well laid out and the drivers helped to community when our stops were coming, even though English is rarely spoken by anyone. We enjoyed our few day stopover here greatly!
I have just come back from a holiday to Japan and I think the most amazing thing about Japan was Mount Fuji. I had seen pictures of it before and had heard about it but seeing it is WOW!!! Took us a while to get to it from central Tokyo but the journey was worth it. Climbing it was pretty... More
Coming from a country with no mountains. Mt Fuji is a great photographic experience. We were lucky to have a clear period, though it was raining the whole day. The clouds cleared around the late evening and the view of the snow capped mountains is spectacular. Sitting along the maple corridor makes it an even greater experience.
Maybe it is because, I'm from Switzerland, but for me Mt. Fuji was a waste of time. I visited the mountain in October 2013, we were lucky to see the mountain at all, because the days before, it was always cloudy and the peak was not visible. ... Though Mt. Fuji had no snow on it and therefore just looked... More
Mt Fuji rises grandiosely and enormously out of a rather featureless area. It is eternal and numinal, and being able to see it in real life makes you feel somehow transformed. I recommend trying to see it, even if that means taking a shinkansen route that passes by it.
Excellent climb with very well marked trails. Make sure you bring warm clothes for the top - temperatures below zero even in the summer (with wind chill too!). Avoid the mountain huts at all cost, terrible food and didn't catch a wink of sleep. You get small portion of rice and curry for dinner and cold rice (given to you... More
The energy around Mount Fuji can't be described. I was lucky to go in a day in which I could see it perfectly. I was already traveling for a few days in Japan, and was really tired, thought of not going to Mount Fuji, but in a conversation with and Indonesian I changed my mind when she said: "It's Mr... More
The boat ride and area mount FUji is In is very beautiful. We only got to see the bottom part of Mount Fuji and that was lucky apparently according to the tour guide. We ate a Kiro tamago egg which is suppose to add 7 years to your life. You can get these up on the mountain with the sulphur... More
