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.

Climbing Mount Fuji was at the top of my bucketlist. So last July I took a plane to Japan to climbed it. I decided to divided the ascent it in two days, as I thought one day might be too challenging. So I spent part of the first day and night at a small cabin at around 2,500 meters aboves... More

Enjoyed magnificent view from Lake Kawaguchiko during the sunset and Lake Motosu during Shibazakura festival. Be prepared for extreme cold weather.

We were taken to this mountain as part of a package tour to Tokyo. It is said to be the highest mountain in Japan. It is approachable by bus and has a temple and a shop for souvenirs and eating joints plus a post office to send picture post cards.

Having gone to the top of Vesuvius, I'd expected a similar hike. Not by a LONG shot! Apparently, Japanese don't believe in gently sloping paths(and I saw the same thing on another mountain in Japan), so all the way up it's a pretty steep incline. So, unless you're in top physical shape, I'd call it a pretty challenging climb. It's... More

Take the two day hike to the top. Sleep at 7th or 8th station. Get up at 2 in the morning and follow the thousands to the to top experience the sunrise at the ridge og the crater. It is with all the trouble.

We climbed the Yoshida trail from the Fuji 5th station on what started as a sunny July day. It was easy and convenient to get there on the bus from Kawaguchiko train station. When we were almost at the 6th station, the rain started and the clouds drew in, staying with us for the rest of the day. It is... More

I'am an IT person. Sit at computer all days, never do any mountain climb before and I plan my first climb in mount Fuji alone. I take the Yoshida trail, the climb from 5th station to 8th station is fairly easy. I stay at the 8th station hut at night and continue to climb at 1 AM. From 8th station... More

After having spent seven years hiking in Korea, I found Fuji to be a relatively easy hike - at least in that it's not so strenuous. I took the Subashiri route up and the Gotemba route down and was really pleased with both; got an early start (recommended to avoid tour groups!) and didn't run into any traffic on the... More

Very mental and physical climb. Highly recommend layering up as it gets to 0 around the 8th station. Although I hiked up and down using converses. I wouldn't if I did it again, hiking footwear and a walking stick is needed

If you're here first time, recommend you should go with tour group. Winter is cold, when I was there day time around 4-6 Celsius so better keep your body warm with appropriate jacket. It can be -30 Celsius too. But put the weather aside, during cherry blossom, you will fine this place just like heaven on earth. It was so... More
