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

For first time travelers to Fuji wondering how to prepare for weather, expect ALL of the above. The same trip can bright sun, strong wind, cold rain, or comfortable hiking. The keys then are: pack light, and put EVERY THING in plastic zip locks bags. If your back pack is not waterproof and protected, even a short rain can fill... More

It's not very long or high but it's a lovely scramble to the top with a great sense of camaraderie among fellow walkers (or runners as a marathon club were running up as we were coming down). It can be done in a day fairly painlessly if your fit but staying in a mountain hut overnight betters the chances of... More

My partner and i (both in our mid 50s but quite fit for our age) climbed mt fuji on our own using the subashuri (red) route on 1july14. We took 7.5 hrs to ascend starting at 0600, summitting at 1330, and 5hrs to descend. The climb was straight forward and easy to follow despite snow delaying the official opening to... More

This is my 3rd time to climb Mt. Fuji, the previous time was over 15 years ago. This time my teenage son and I planned our climb a few days after a typhoon, when we figured there would be clear weather. Wrong! It was clear the day before, but when we arrived by bus at the 5th Station, it was... More

We booked bus tickets to the 5th station on the internet one day in advance. The bus left about 9 from the Shinjuku station (Highway bus station). The ticket costs 2700 yen one way per person. When we left from tokyo, it was 30 degrees and sunny. At station 5 there was heavy rain, wind, fog and not a glimpse... More

We reached the 5th station mid morning and proceeded to the info centre. There we gathered some information on what to do during the hike. We paid a small contribution to the UNESCO fund for the upkeep of the mountain (1,000 Yen) and received a badge and a portable toilet as well. By 4.30 pm, we were at the 8th... More

After reading all the negative comments about the huts on MT Fuji we decided to climb the mountain in one day. We stayed nearby the local bus station, and planned to take the bus to the fifth station in the morning. On this day the road was closed, so we had to take a taxi which only took us to... More
