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.

I recommend to take a bus to Kawagutiko station from Shibuya or Shinjuku. It is more accessable to book an early bus. Although the easiest way to get to Fuji 5th station is the direct bus, but I was not able to book tickets , it was fully booked. I left Tokyo at 8-35 AM from Shibuya station, make sure... More

Went here today to the Mount Fuji 5th station to see the mountain and although it was cloudy it was good to be on the grounds of the mountain.

As one of the busiest places in Japan to climb, Mt. Fuji is a great place to tackle your climbing obsession or even take a group. The all day/night climb is not for the faint of heart (or inexperienced) and should not be taken lightly. You NEED to plan ahead for this!! Reservations will be needed at many of the... More

We started off from Yokohama. We intended to book a bus to go the 5th station directly but it was full unfortunately. We had to go to Lake Kawaguchi and took bus there to go to the 5th station, the starting point of the Yoshida Trail (2,305m). After buying a rod for getting stamps on the way, we took off... More

if you are in Tokyo, take a day off to visit this iconic mountain! Come during spring time where the forest at the foot of the mountain turns red and orange, resembling a spectacular artistic scenery! Beautiful place and once you reach almost the top by bus, if I recall correctly the 7th station, if the weather permits, you can... More

Night climbing to see the sunrise! It was an amazing experience that I will never forget!!! Climbing season only on July and August. Be careful with forecast. Bring proper protection against low temperatures and strong winds. It can be below zero at the summit even in summer.

If you're thinking of climbing Mt Fuji but aren't sure let me tell you it is not as hard as it looks. I took the Yoshida Trail and it took me 4 and a half hours to climb and 4 hours to descend. It is noteworthy to mention that I almost didn't climb it because I had no climbing gear... More

I had my flight in the evening, but in the early morning Mt Fuji was clear from Fujiyoshida so i took the 6.30 am bus (take it in Fujiyoshida, it is already full when it arrives at Kawaguchiko) to 5th station and i climbed fullspeed to the top with only a 2 minutes stop on the way: 2 hours 24...

Mount Fuji is one of my most memorable and emotional moments in my life so far! If you have time and the will to do it, do it! If you go for the night climb w/o overnight it is not costly. There are many posts re Mount Fuji that is why I will only focus on how to get there... More
