About
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.

My first hike above 3000m.
Decided to do a night hike to witness the sunrise on the peak. Weather wasn't great at first and it rained quite heavily for the first half of the trek. This made us quite cold and uncomfortable so we payed quite a lot to sleep in a mountain hut for a few hours.
As a person who relies heavily on glasses, the rain, wind and darkness made the route slightly risky, however there was a rope to hold onto most of the way on the Yoshida trail.

We woke up at around 4am to finish the hike to the top.
Spectacular views of the sunrise, lots of people were there to witness this.

I hiked Mt Fuji in July of 2021 from the 5th station to the summit and it was an incredible experience. I stayed at station 8 to catch the sunrise. Unfortunately, with 60mph wind gusts and rain there was no sunrise, the weather was brutal at the summit. It was still an amazing adventure and incredible mountain. I spent many years in mountainous areas and know that the mountain can change at any minute so I came prepared. I did see the mountain from the pagoda twice, one day it was cloudy and the other day it was clear. I feel it's luck of the draw whether you will see Fuji or not. I recommend climbing Fuji and enjoying it from a distance. I wish to come back in the winter to see it with snow. During the summer the base is nice and green. Mt Fuji is incredible.

This will forever be one of my favorite places in the whole world. We were one of the lucky few to see the top of Mount Fuji during the whole day and as we got closer it got more and more beautiful. We just couldn't stop taking pictures. Please keep in mind that weather conditions don't allow to see the top every day.

The original plan was to see mount fuji. The day started with promise it was sunny/overcast when starting. Ultimately, We did not see much. As we ascended, snow started falling. By the time we reached 5th station, we found out that they were no longer allowing vehicles to enter for safety reasons. We couldn’t see the peak due to the snow. There is a shrine on the grounds, so I went there for a little bit before heading back to the bus.

Travelled with my parents as part of a tour.

The life story of Kubota San is very beautiful and the kimono bring his story to life. The nature you can explore outside enhances the experience.

Bought a to and fro ticket for a bus ride from Tokyo central to Mount Fuji. Used the local bus pass at Fuji to move around the area. The ride from Tokyo to Fuji gives a good glimpse of Tokyo city as well as the country side. Mt. Fuji is visible from most of the places in the town unless your view is obstructed by buildings or trees. I felt that the best view was from the Kawaguchiko Natural Living Center and I spent most of my time here (decided after having visited other places to catch a glimpse of the mountain top which was covered by clouds for a long time). The garden, flowers, and the lake add to the beauty. Of course, you may not be able to catch a glimpse of the entire mountain immediately; but the place provides a nice ambiance to spend time, with the mountain always in your sight.

I went to Mt Fuji a bit of time ago and I remember it all still. The views are spectacular and are truly an icon of Japan. The guide was friendly and understandable and I would highly recommend going. I had a great time with my friends when I went there.
