Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: 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.

It was a very long and very boring trip. It was also in October so, everything was kind of blocked for safety concerns. The view was really very good but it was just sort of boring, Definitely bring some kind of a snack to eat on the way. The view on top was really very very very good and truly... More

We booked our trip with Sunshine Tours from the Japan Tourist Board (JTB). We were collected at 8:20 am at the Intercontinental hotel in central Tokyo, there are pickups from many places and a pull down menu makes this easy. This bus took us to the bustling Tokyo bus station to transfer to our tour bus, all very efficiently done... More

Even though i didnt get to go up to 5th station due to early snow, but just that view from Lake Ashi and mountain base is breath taking. I had imagine it to be bigger but it is beautiful no matter what.

Everytime I took the Shinkansen from Narita south to Hamamatsu, I was struck by the quiet beauty of this snow covered volcano, perfect symmetry. Past visits.

One of the problems of travelling in Japan in winter is that it is not possible to get to the summit of Mount Fuji or even to the 5th Stations on its slopes if there had been snow. This was the case with us in December 2014. The summit was closed and no buses were running anywhere on the slopes.... More

I hated every moment of my ascent to the top and detested each step of the descent. Largely due to the relentless rain. Nevertheless this is a special place and with hindsight it was an incredible experience. I would urge anyone with a few days spare to climb this volcano. It truly was a life changing experience. It wasn't as... More

What can I say, it's Fuji, an icon of Japan. Went there in November and didn't go much higher than 2000 metres. Stunning view, amazingly peaceful. Loved it!

Get yourself to Shinduko station and buy a Hakone pass . You can get a two or three day pass and this is the best value option . I would suggest paying extra for the romance car as it's the fast option ,about 80 minutes to Hakone - Yumoto . Get off train and catch the bus down to lake... More

There are several day trips which can be planned considering the awesome transportation here. Last week Japan celebrated their cultural day and hence we got a holiday. Sunday we... More
