After the long chilling journey, what has got everyone thinking is Rest Room. Usually most will walk into the Mount Fuji 5th Station Gogoen Rest House (wooden log building). The rest room is located at the back. Drop the money in the box and climb down the staircase. After that.... phew what a relieve 😆

Mt. Fuji is such a majestic place, everyone is eager to catch a glimpse and at least get to climb the glorious volcano up to the 5th station. It was spring and an avalanche prevented us to move more closer so we were taken to the nearest lake to catch a view, ride a ship for 20 minutes to marvel... More

Our guide could not promise us that Mt.Fuji would be visible to us during our scheduled tour. Inside the bus in the morning, she gave out a wide grin when the sun shone and a clear view of the snow capped mountain became visible to us. Wow, we had a field day in taking our souvenir shots at the Grinpa... More

The famous mountain of Fuji Advice in here : - There a souvenir shop that had many great goods to buy, the food is really good - Nothing to do beside shopping and sightseeing - If you really want a great experience go and dare to climb the mountain Well that's there is all to say.

Mt. Fuji is a famous and popular destination among tourists. Being in Tokyo and not going to the base of Mt. Fuji is a great loss. As we were there in December, we were fortunate to experience slight snow. All buses stop at that one particular location, therefore, the place is very crowded. However, the people in charge of that... More

The 5th station is where most visitors begin climb of Mr. Fuji. Souvenir shops and restaurants dot the landscape. You can also find lodging (mountain huts). The climbing season begins July 1 and ends August 31. During the peak season, you will join many other climbers and feel as if you were in a rush hour.

I have never seen a monster -size mountain before- it was a rainy day and in no way could you see the top- probably only on a few sunny days a year, Mt Fuji so big. For the brave and spiritual take another three days off and climb to the highest station like a Japanese local. At the lowest station... More

Mount Fuji is a World Heritage site; it is kept very clean and tidy - no rubbish bins, etc. We were warned in advance that the 5th station can be surprisingly cold, even when it's warm down on the coast. Yes it was cold, and be warned - this is 2300m up a mountain, so you may get a bit... More

We were extremely fortunate to visit Mt.Fuji on a day in October which was clear and sunny and Mt.Fuji was visible in all its glory. Sadly,most of the people we subsequently spoke to told us that they were either able to catch a glimpse of it wrapped in clouds or,having traveled all that way,find that it was not visible at...

We took the Viator tour to the 5th station and were fortunate enough to have perfectly clear skies and the first dusting of snow for late autumn. The bus tour was very organised, although we were picked up at Tokyo Station before being taken to the private bus depot to board another bus. If we had the option I would... More
