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

Only recently visited Mt.Fuji. Wanted to go there before i bid Japan farewell. This mountain is so majestic that i would just sit there and watch it all day. There is a certain majesty with this mountain that you can't miss. Standing all by itself with its imposing scale, you can see it from as far away as Yokohama or... More

Probably the biggest attraction in Japan and yet so difficult to see at times. The Visitor Centre has exhibits about Mt Fuji and an excellent video in English about the origins of the volcano. But, one is always drawn to the outside to Fuji itself. When we visited most of it was covered in cloud, but later they lifted except... More

We were so lucky today. Driving from Tokyo to Hakone and the mountain was suddenly seen from our bus with all its glory. All morning we got nearer and nearer, till passing the lake under the mountain, than taking the gondola, which was very efficient. This was lunch time and the mountain was clear and ready to pose for us...non... More

Mt.Fuji is king of mountain!!! It is the highest mountain in Japan. There are many people all seasons. It is very very hard to climb. But,if you reach the top of mountain,you will feel very very happy.

The transport was very easy and the attendants were very helpful. When departing the train I would recommend getting off at the lake stop rather Mt Fuji. We went to 5th station which took just under an hour from the lake to get to (go to the bus stop early to ensure you aren't standing for the ride). Facilities good... More

We booked train tickets from Tokyo to visit Mount Fuji ourselves, without a guided tour, as reviews suggested that no visit to Japan is complete unless you visit Fuji. The trip was easy enough to do, with a transfer at Otsuki to the Mount Fuji local line that stopped at either Mount Fuji Station or Kawaguchiko Station. At Otsuki we... More

This tour was very good value for money. I think the cost was kept down due to the fact that it was by coach both ways. It appears that most of the other day tours use a coach one way and return by shinkansen (fast train). We quite enjoyed having the coach both ways, much more relaxing and scenic. You... More

I joined local tour for 1 day Mt.Fuji, Hakone trip. The tour will bring you to the 5th Station visitor centre, which is the highest point a vehicle can reach the mountain. If weather is bad, they usually bring you to 4th Station. I was told 4th Station does not have anything much to shop. There are few shops, Pos... More

It was lucky that we can see the whole mountain so clearly. The air is so fresh and clean. The main problem is the water. The comfort rooms are smelly, because there is no water there.
