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.

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

Was staying in Tokyo. Made a day trip to Mount Fuji. Went up to the fifth station by coach and got off there. There are souvenir shops at the fifth station. The fifth station is the highest location you can reach by any motor vehicle.

We stayed in a hotel close by. Rather foggy in the morning and could not see more than 100 metres. Probably 15 minutes later there it was in all its glory and 15 minutes later back to poor visability. Mind you it was a majestic view if you were quick.

The mountain is a sight to behold. I was hoping lava monsters would emerge and someone will be chosen as the hero like many of their Toku series but that didn't happened. Bit on a serious note the air tasted better up there. Definitely a must see/visit site.

Firstly we needed waterproof coats, didn't bring them so we got some plastic crap, secondly we climb at night with a pinpoint... More

We were extremely lucky as this beautiful magical mountain revealed herself both in the evening & morning before putting her cloud cloak back on If you are in Japan worth going out of your way to see her

This is a once in a lifetime experience. Mount Fuji is beautiful, but due to fog it was hard to see it at it's best. Still, if you find yourself in Japan, you have to check out Mount Fuji - it's amazing!

Beijing in Tokyo for a couple of days we decided to take a tour to Mount Fuji. Although we could go to the 5th step on 2300 meter the summit could not been seen but it was an very valuable experience because the 5th step was open today for the first time. The drive by bus was amazing as on... More
