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.

Highly recommend staying over night in a hut and finishing the hike at 1 am and seeing the sunrise from the top. Best view I could ever imagine

Overall, it is an excellent trip with very good local tour guide explaining the historical background of Japan, monument etc as typically needed to impress... More

This mountain is a tough climb if you do it in a day, we learned that pretty quickly. We chose the Subashiri route somewhat by mistake, and hiked from the 5th Station to the summit and back in one day. I can't say much more about the mountain than has already been said. It's challenging and spectacular. I recommend doing... More

We had a 1 day bus trip from Tokyo to Mount Fuju and basically you experience the highs and lows... The low being that the morning started as a cloudy day and as we approached entrance gate to the 1st station, it was still cloudy and we were warned that we may not have a view ; previous day there...

We booked a day trip with Viator which included a coach trip to Mount Fuji, lunch at a theme park (very cool), a trip to Lake Ashi and boat cruise, then finally a cable car trip up Mount Komagatake. We also caught a bullet train back. I quickly want to mention the negatives. Before booking, I contacted Viator to ask... More

I climbed Mt Fuji about ten years ago, while living and teaching English in Japan, and the experience will never leave me. The locals have an expression that goes something like 'a wise man will climb it once, a fool will do it a second time.' I have to say that sounds very sensible to me, because although this is...

First of all, some reviews I read on various sites described the hike up Mount Fuji as a boring climb, packed with tourists--something you do just to say you did it. I disagree. The landscape was fairly barren at first glance, but it lets you appreciate the small plants and mosses that grow at different altitudes and the incredible variety... More

Mount Fuji is a shy lady and is usually covered in mist. Our coach climbed through the clouds and we were lucky to arrive at station 5 in sunshine and had clear views Climb the staircase to the left of the tourist shop and you get an elevated view complete with a wooden Dias commemorating your visit to take pictures...
