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

While Mount Fuji is Japan's highest mountain and is doable in a day, it is incredibly hard work. Thousands of people of all ages climb the mountain every year and is one of Japan's biggest tourist attractions. Some like to start in the evening and arrive at the top at night to see the sunrise. It is also worth pointing... More

I climbed Fuji from Kawaguchiko 5th Station during the day after a big storm delayed my overnight climb. The climb is straightforward, with a very well-maintained path at a fairly easy grade. If you are a fairly active hiker, doing it all in one day is not too bad, but it will take time - I made it up in... More

Climbing Mt Fuji overnight is an experience you'll never forget. It's very hard work with around 4-7 hrs uphill. The last bus will drop you off at the start points (there are 4 of them) at around 8pm and with nothing else to do you will tend to start up then. It's going to get very cold and could be... More

It was a full day trip that we took from Tokyo to mount Fugi. The bus made a couple of stops along the way, and allowed us sufficient time on the mountain for the great view and some shopping. Definitely worth it to see...once in a lifetime.

They say in Japan that everyone should climb Mt Fuji once but only a fool climbs it twice and i fully agree. There were so many people climbing it even at 2:00 in the morning that nearing the top was just a queue of people moving slowly up the mountain. It has to be said though that the view from... More

This climb was not what I was expecting. It was incredibly painful. It took more than 9 hours to climb. There was an incredibly number of people on the mountain and there were constant traffic jams. But it was still pretty cool looking up or down and selling an endless snaking line of people in colourful climbing gear. This was... More

We went to Mount Fuji to see it not to climb it, after getting there we wished we had had more time as it is not a difficult mountain to climb. There is transport to the 5th station and after that you can make in the summit in 5-6 hours if prepared. Great views from just half way up.

I admit i was lucky, it was November and yet there was not a cloud in the sky and we also got to the top station, all be it a bit late as we had to wait for the road to thaw as it was frozen at the top. Also as it was not the main season was pretty quite.... More

Was lucky to arrive at 5th station on a clear day with a magnificent view of Fuji-san despite the snow on the way up via our tour bus! Beautiful sakura at the bottom of the mountain! A must-see!
