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.

Although a mountain like a single rock, mount fuji shares stories and mystical paths to explore. In oct has already some snow on the peak. Highly recommended to get a tour with a tour guide to appreciate the beauty of the place from a bus window and many things explained from the guide

Started hiking at 10 pm from 5th station and reached the top around 4:30 am the next day. I saw the most beautiful and breathtaking view of the sunrise on top of Mt. Fuji. For me the descent was the toughest hike down. Make sure you wear hiking boots that will not hurt your toes stepping on volcanic rocks on... More

Met early at the hotel and like all tours had to wait until everyone was assembled before getting on the bus. The tour left at 8.30am and we thought reasonably priced. The tour provided cold green tea and water. Plus we booked it with lunch and it came with a Bento box - very adequate. We had only 45 minutes... More

This tour which included Mount fuji, the rope way and bullet train, was almost the most disappointing and waste of time I think I have ever experienced. The tour was arranged in conjunction with our cruise and the tour company Wendy Wu. On arrival in Tokyo at our hotel information was in our rooms to say that the time allocated... More

When we set off on our day trip it was so cloudy that we were bracing ourselves for the disappointment of not being able to see the mountain at all. Fortunately, the skies cleared just enough but it really made me feel sorry for those who pay the same amount of money and only see an overcast sky. You can't... More

Booked a day tour to include a visit to Mount Fuji last month. Setting out on an overcast morning we were doubtful that we'd see much when we reached the fifth station. On the drive there, our tour guide was very informative about the history of the area and all manner of interesting things. However, she did say that in... More

Mt Fuji was one of the most overrated tourist destinations I've ever been to. There was fog all over the mountain so we saw nothing, and while I agree that is just natures way, and it can't be helped, there is also not a great deal to see or do in the Mt Fuji area either for days when the... More

it will be virtually impossible to come to japan and not see mount fuji - but she is know as the shy lady as a good percentage of the time she is shrouded in mist then you cant apprecaite the iconic shape - looks even bettrer after a flurry of snow which we were rewarded with in october

Our tour took us from Tokyo to Mount Fuji. I was very excited as it was a clear day. We had some fantastic views of Mount Fuji during the drive there; however, the bus never stopped to let us take photos or to enjoy the grandeur of the moment. Instead it stopped at the "Fifth" station where the views are... More
