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.

The Trails to the top can be easily accessed by public transports, from basically anywhere. The trails are well marked and it is an easy climb for normally fit people. Up to the top and down in one day is easy, yet by doing so in summer you may miss clear view as the cone tends to be covered by... More

The summit of Fuji-san is always going to be an important peak to bag for Asian hikers, and I was fortunate to have hiked when the conditions were perfect for the legendary sunrise. The early part of the hike involves some time at the 5th Station. From here, you can purchase a traditional hiking stick (I recommend getting the long... More

We went to Kawaguchiko the lake site to arrive in foggy and rainy weather, but it cleared out. Luky us because we were only for one day. We went up with the rope way and had to wait a while. But in the clouds we could see the summit. The gamble was not in vain.

Really amazing and beautiful, but prepare lot of cash, the hutte are a bit pricy ( around 80$) , plus all the coins for toilet and drinks. The climbing is not so difficult as the pathway is really well made , if u wake up early enough the scenery for the sunrise is just unbelievable ... enjoy the walk

It is a good 7 hours to the top if you don't rush; a great view of the volcano crater at the top. for me to toughest part was getting back down, since is a different kind of effort, my knees started to hurt, but well you just have to keep going; be aware that there are 3 different "station...

I did this hike without much prior research which was a real mistake. I got to Saburu 5th Line station in the early afternoon and didn't find out until I was having lunch that you had to reserve a spot in a mountain hut, otherwise they wouldn't let you in. This meant that I had the do the whole climb... More

Climbing Mount Fuji is definitely not for the faint hearted especially if you scale it to see the sunrise and you are doing it overnight! However it is doable. We started our climb from station 5 via the yoshida trail at 7pm and made safely to station 8 at about 1am. However that was as high as we could go... More

We visited the 5th station during a trip to Fuji. The weather was disappointing but to be on the mountain and some of the view was awesome. There is a gift shop and a place to eat catered for tourists really but also a start point for hikers.

We were super excited about climbing Mt. Fuji and picked the perfect weekend with supposedly beautiful weather for an overnight hike to see the sun rise on Sunday morning. We got to the 5th Station without any traffic and started climbing @ 6 p.m. after paying a "required donation" of 1000 yen per person. The hike on the beginning is... More

I tried to hike Mount Fuji in winter time with the hope that I could go to the 5th station and carry on foot. But there was no bus service when I was there. So I hiked all the way from my hotel to there. I had only half day for myself to enjoy the hiking . I made it... More
