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.

We took a day trip to Mount Fuji, it was about a 2 hour drive to get there. We got to stage 5 up the mountain. What they don't tell you before you go is that more often than not it is shrouded in mist so you cannot see the top. We went on a tour and only had 40min... More

If you're in Japan, you absolutely need to visit Mount Fuji. The mountain is breath-taking. There is even a small shopping center at the top.

We climbed yoshida trail up (8 h) and fujinomiya trail down (4h). This is much more than the official approximates, because we had full 60L backpacks (which I don't recommend to anyone. This was the most horrible hike we've ever done!!). Some guides say that even the japanese children and seniors climb the mountain, which is true, but this doesn't... More

My husband and I went to mount Kinabalu, Jade mountain and thus is the third higher than 2500m mountain that we climbed. Mount Fuji is the shortest and easiest amongst the three but the most beautiful one. It is still tough to climb up and when you come down, it is very slippery due to small stones and sand. While...

Even without the snow cap, this mountain has it's own impressive image hundreds of miles from it's location on clear day. The tour bus took us through the two lane paved road up to the highest point where there is a gift shop and rest rooms. From here, one can hike up to the top of the mountain which may... More

I started from the Fujinomiya trail. It took me 3 hours to get from 5th station to the top, and an hour and half to get back. The hike is not super difficult and does not require much equipment, I went up with a bottle of water wearing tshirt and shorts. The only things I recommend is a pair of... More

You need to plan the trip well, for you are, literally going to walk in thin air. I would recommend altitude training; I never made it to the top, because of my altitude sickness. The walk up the great Fuji-san more than a mountain walk. It is meeting the mountain and the people that on the trail. The Japanese say... More

We were very lucky with a clear day and you could actually see the top of the mountain. Amazing that we can see snow in month of April! If you have the chance to visit Mt. Fuji you should absolutely take it. The air is clear and the view is amazing

Challenging! but if you are an experienced hiker, you don't need a tour! The descent is dangerous, because is too steep and your knees suffer... I did 7 hours ascent and 3 hours descent. The last hour before sunset, even during weekdays (and raining season) get crowded, so you might be stuck in line just before sunrise... Would allow at... More

Wow! What an adventure!!! This was my first time EVER hiking or climbing anything! What did I get myself into??? The ascent and descent are very brutal. But, it was well worth it. Every station that I received a stamp, I felt accomplished and that that stamp was well deserved. Every time I look at my climbing stick I'm amazed... More
