Mt Fuji Climbing Tour (Summer Only)

Main guide Kenji is a professional Mt Fuji guide since 2004. He devoted himself 7 seasons so far and climbed Fuji more than 100 times.

Fuji is a special mountain. Not only the highest in Japan.
It is a noble peak, loved by many people for its beauty, and Fuji is a symbolic mountain and a home to the Japanese heart.

Fuji also has been a religious mountain for a long time. It climbed by many pilgrims from all over Japan. Even today, many Japanese have a desire to climb Mt. Fuji once in a lifetime. That is why it was registered as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site in 2013.

We’ll take risk management, pace control, climate judgment and advice for acclimatization and explain natural features and cultural background. Then, trust me, your summiting probability is overwhelmingly increased and your climbing gets ​totally different from the ​climb​ing alone.

We are happy to support your climbing and wish your success.-

Detail of the trekking route

【5th-7th】
Start climbing by passing through the gate. Walk on flat and easygoing path in the forest. I’ll explain the wildflowers and scenery you can see. After 1 hour, we’ll reach 6th station, then you can see the summit and steep zigzag path there in good weather.

Then authentic climbing starts. Gradually trees and even grass will disappear. 1.5 hours tough zigzag upending, then reach 7th station.

【7th-8th】
7th station has 7 mountain huts. From the first hut, the rocky path will start. We’re going to climb using your hands sometimes. Usually, your breathing getting tougher, but keeping a ​slow and steady pace is really important.
After 2 hours of climbing, you’ll reach the last hut of 7th station.
Then climbing 45 min to 8th station, and your goal “Taishikan hut”. Congratulations!
This is 3,000m(≒10,000 feet), very high. In good weather, you can see the ​magical starry sky and magnificent sunrise there

【8th – Original 8th】2hours / 3,000m – 3,400m
In midnight, we start to climb with a headlamp.
The path is well organized and easy, but you’ll struggle with cold, less oxygen, and maybe sleepy.
If the weather is clear, you can enjoy starry sky and night view of Tokyo. The sky gradually becomes brighter. We take a break for sunrise in a hut at the original 8th station.

【Original 8th – Summit】2hours / 3,400m – 3,750m
The path is similar. The summit is approaching in your sight. This is the most physically and mentally tough part. The last 30 min is a rocky part, you may use hands to support.
Going through “The Torii gate” of the summit shrine, you’ll be at the summit. I’ll take you to the shrine and a hat where hot drinks and noodle are available. You can buy good luck charm only available here.

【Crater trekking】1.5hours
This is the highest trekking route in Japan, turning around the Mt.Fuji crater. Path is flat except a heart beating slope to the peak(3,776m). You can see the magnificent crater and 360-degree​ dynamic view from Mt.Fuji. This is a gift for summiter.

【Summit – 5th】4hours / 3,750m – 2,300m
