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.

No matter how old you are, you are highly recommended to do it once: Walk up Mount Fuji to see the sun rise from there. If you are not up for queuing the whole night up a mountain - like thousands of others do, go there during the day and get a room on one of the stations and march... More

I climbed Mt Fuji last August (2015), the view from the summit was nothing spectacular compares to other mountains I climbed like Rinjani and Kinabalu. But unlike those 2 mountains, no guide, permit or booking is required, you can climb the mountain any time you want during the climbing season (July - August), it is open 24 hours a day.... More

Fuji is wonderful even in winter. Pure, white snow under sunshine is spectacular. Less crowded, more time and fresh air. Just wear warm cloths.

Overall the trip was satisfying because we saw the majestic Mt Fuji under clear blue skies. But personally I felt each stop could have been longer to make the trip less rushed. Trip was on 16 Feb and the weather was lovely. Clear blue skies and we could already see Mt Fuji on the ride to Fuji Visitor Centre. It... More

We took the Highway bus from Shinjuku to Lake Kawaguchi in October hoping to see this iconic sight and stayed for only a few hours as this was all we really wanted to see. We were not disappointed. We had a very clear day following 2-3 days of overcast skies and rain and the views of Fuji over the lake... More

We visited Mount Fuji on a beautiful December day and the mountain, which is typically shrouded in clouds, appeared before us, soaring to nearly 12,400 ft, making it the tallest mountain in Japan. What makes it unique is that is a perfectly symmetrical cone shape that can be seen as far away as 100 miles. We were lucky to have... More

I went there in August, 2010. You can get a bus from Tokyo station towards Lake Kawaguchi, and from there, you can get into a bus going to the 5th station of Mount Fuji. Many modes of transportation available to reach Lake Kawaguchi (Kawaguchi-ko). Its better to plan 2 days trip to Fuji san, since, going and returning back on... More

Since when I was a small kid I have the memory of Japanese pictures A train passing in front of mount Fuji and was mesmerized with the beauty. Somehow during a business trip in Nov 2008 I had the opportunity to track the mountain and it was an experience worth life time.

This was a "must do" on our stopover in Tokyo, and we booked it with JTB Sunrise Tours months ahead from the UK. We knew that winter was a good time to go, but were fretting about the weather for weeks. We needn't have bothered as we looked out in the morning on a gloriously clear sunny day. Our hotel... More

Mount Fuji -The iconic image of Japan. Just 100km from Tokyo it is very easy to obtain a daytrip to Mount Fuji, Fuji Five lakes and the Hakone Komagatake Ropeway. From the 5th station, about 2,000 metres up Mt. Fuji, there are astonishing views over the Fuji Five lakes below. The 5th station has the usual shops selling tourist "gifts"... More
