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 visited this great mountain in June although the weather forcast was to be sunny when we arrived at station 5 it was misty and quite chilly so we didn't see the mountain at all. We then went to lake Ashi for a short boat trip to mount Komagatake Where we were to take the aerial tramway to the summit... More

A tripped one (get it? okay nevermind) :D Mt. Fuji is located outside Tokyo, so we had to take a bus from Shinjuku (took us about 2-3 hours) -- I don't know if you have a train option but that's what we did. The bus ride itself was amazing, with Scenic views from both sides of the windows. The bus... More

This is our first visit to Tokyo & Mount Fuji. We would like to thank Ms Naomi from Japan Gray Line who had made our trip to Mount Fuji so unforgettable and interesting (6 of us took her tour on 18 May 2015). She is the best tour guide I have ever met. Her efforts and things that she had... More

No trip to Japan is complete with a visit to view Mt. Fuji. Revered by locals and well known worldwide as the symbol of Japan, this mountain is majestic and breath taking. While the mountain can be viewed from Tokyo on a clear day and 2-3 touristy places near the base, we found the view from Lake Kawaguchiko very satisfying.... More

The bus driver gave an in depth voice over on the bus all in Japanese, he stopped on the way up the mountain so that pictures could be taken. Once at the 5th station there... More

We booked our trip with Hato Bus. It starts from Tokyo Central Station and takes you to the base of Mt.Fuji. The stay over there is for an hour when you can visit the shops and have a spectacular view of the Mountain. The coach then took us to Hotel where we were served lunch in a restaurant facing Mt.Fuji.... More
