Awesome is actually an understatement. If you admired the sacred mountain in the pictures, you will be mesmerized once you see it personally. And I agree with what others say: it's better to view it from afar than to climb it. Besides, I'm not keen...More

You want to plan your trip there any time of the year, it will offer some special views anyways. Leave Tokyo for at least a day to see it.

It’s hard to beat the natural beauty of Mt Fuji if the skies are clear. Winter gets really cold on the top.

Questions & Answers

Hi all, I intend to climb Mt Fuji with my family this coming Summer. I have little knowledge about how to go about. Need advise on some basic questions here; 1. Will be arriving to Tokyo first. What is the best more of transport from Tokyo to Mount Fuji? 2. Possible to take transport from Tokyo to Mt Fuji and start the ascend to the hut on the same day? I am asking this to see if we need to spend the nite at place near to Mt Fuji area before the ascend. 2. How shall we plan our time for the ascend? where? time of arrival at hut? time to ascend? 3. What do we need to prepare in advance assuming that we are doing this during summer; attire, bags, etc? 4. For the stay overnight at the hut? what are the options? Are there many huts to choose? s hot water available for bath? Restaurant available? 5. Anyone has done the trip with itinerary? 6. Anything else that we should know in advance; is guide a requirement? etc Thanks in advance for your reply. Cheers.

Certainly! If it’s a clear day, why not?? Just be aware that the temperature is AT LEAST 10 degrees cooler at 5th station (where the bus would drop you off).

Hi, Also if you need a cheap travel option - there are coaches that go from tokyo for about 8,000 yen that take you literally to Fuji Highland. Kind regards L x
