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.

What can I say, it's Fuji, an icon of Japan. Went there in November and didn't go much higher than 2000 metres. Stunning view, amazingly peaceful. Loved it!

Get yourself to Shinduko station and buy a Hakone pass . You can get a two or three day pass and this is the best value option . I would suggest paying extra for the romance car as it's the fast option ,about 80 minutes to Hakone - Yumoto . Get off train and catch the bus down to lake... More

Hello from Tokyo! :) Have been here for around two months now and I managed to roam around all the near by places in between my busy work schedule :D . There are several day trips which can be planned considering the awesome transportation here. Last week Japan celebrated their cultural day and hence we got a holiday. Sunday we... More

It really is luck of the draw. We were lucky & had great views, with snow, from Owakudani Geothermal fields in the afternoon with an "umbrella" cloud formation. The best were from our hotel Kagetsuen car park early in the morning, Lake Ashi & the gardens along the Old Tokaido trail

We went on a day trip to Mt. Fuji, Lake Ashi, and returned via the Shinkansen and were fortunate enough to be there on a very clear day. The bus ride over to Mt. Fuji was long, but comfortable. The tour was enjoyable with a knowledgeable English speaking tour guide, and lunch was nice, but one of the things that... More

We booked the popular "Mt. Fuji-Hakone-5 Lake District" day trip through Sunrise tours. The tour itself started late and required several change of buses. The bus was comfortable and had free wi-fi on board. The ride up to Mt.Fuji included a 20 minute stop in the Visitor's Centre, where we had some hot chocolate to drink. Nothing very interesting to...

Visited many sights including Mount Fuji through “Japanican” tour package. We were picked from Marriot in Ginza and were transferred through many other locations which were admirable. Trip to Fuji was by bus which took a long time, but very comfortable. We opted to stay at the last station and did not climb to the top as I was with... More

If you are looking for a “zen” experience, don’t go to mount Fuji. Instead, try to be “mount Fuji.” Understand? Not the words “mount” and “Fuji,” the actual geology—let your bones become stone. (In fact, they already are fundamentally alike on a mineral level.) Settle into a deep temporal flow, and forget about language for a second, okay? Don’t say... More

Climbing Mt Fuji seemed like a very tedious task but finally I made up my mind to do it! I made sure to take a thick jacket, good trekking shoes, head strapped light, some fruits and biscuits. I recommend to also carry a muffler, head cap and gloves although these can be bought at some of the stations during the... More
