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.

Stay for sunrise but dont climb at night, PREBOOK YOUR HOSTEL and be prepared for altitude sickness/fatigue

Fuji was one of the most important things for me to do while in Japan and i wasn't let down and agree with many who say that if you do not visit this active volcano while in Japan you have missed out on something. We took the Subashiri trail and must say that the signposted distances are misleading and we... More

My son and I climbed Mt Fuji this past week. I was a little concerned about an 8 year old climbing to 12,000 feet, but we kept an open mind and decided early on that just getting on the mountain would be a great experience. I set the expectation that we could turn back at any time. We opted to... More

We are an average family, parents in early 50s and two teenagers. We were concerned that we might not manage to climb Fuji - we aren't fitness fanatics and one of us has asthma, the other a bad back, although overall we are in ok shape. We managed a trouble free ascent - the descent was harder - partly due... More

It's a waste if you don’t visit Fuji-san when coming to Japan. The view was amazing, and I can see the top. It was beautiful. A must-go place in Japan!

Mount Fuji is one of the landmarks for anyone who lands in Japan.. It is couple of hours drive away from Tokyo and the route is quite scenic. The actual mountain may or may not be visible depending on the cloud cover but we were lucky to have seen the clear peak before clouds invaded the photoframes. There's little to... More

There is a famous saying in Japan that a wise man only climbs Mount Fuji once, and having completed the climb for charity I have to agree! Notwithstanding the spectacular views, particularly watching the sun rise at the summit - truly breathtaking, but the climb is challenging and a reasonable degree of fitness is required. The ascent and decent took... More

My family and I climbed Mt. Fuji this August and had a truly wonderful experience. The weather was great (around the 70s and maybe 60s near the top) and the mountain was not very crowded. I highly recommend this climb as it isn't actually that physically difficult and only takes a day. Most guides will recommend doing a two day... More

Took a day tour from Tokyo hotel. Traffic in the morning to the destination was quite heavy. Bus could not proceed to the upper station as the road was still filled with ice and snow. The best view is from visitor center at the base of the mountain.

I took an extra day on a business trip to Tokyo to make the 2 hour journey to Mt Fuji. I took the one day tour with Viator that included lunch. They picked me up at my hotel and dropped me off at the bus station. It was a good choice considering my limited time and the fact that I... More
