  • We travelled by coach to the 5th station, which is the highest point you can travel by coach. Here there are beautiful views of the peak. Souvenir shops are reasonable priced.  more »
  • This is a beautiful view over a beautiful classic volcano format funicular, if you are lucky with the weather, you can go up to level 5.

  • A very pretty mountain! We went in the spring when the weather was really nice and drove up to the 4th station. We had a clear view of the top and a good view from afar too  more »

  • Hiking up ふじさん was an honor. The terrain is crazy but so beautiful and mesmerizing. Some think it’s an easy hike. I don’t know if I agree. Depending on which trail you take may change your experience or perspective. I’m happy to say I’ve climbed this mountain. Highly recommend making the trip to hike up this majestic site. It’s surely a sight to behold!
  • Oh my God. I never forget hiking experience on Mount Fuji. Its just amazing and stunning. I’m happy to say I’ve climbed this mountain. Highly recommend making the trip to hike up this majestic site. It’s surely a sight to behold!
  • We took the hike in the late afternoon so that we could reach the top at night. It's a pretty easy hike with plenty of amenities most of the way up. Be aware though that some of the bathrooms on the path are pay toilets. We arrived at the top and spent the night waiting for sunrise. It can get pretty cold due to cloud cover so make sure you have something warm if you plan to stay until day break. Watching the sun come up and then seeing it reflected on the clouds in the volcano was breathtaking.
  • We started hiking from 5th station at 830 in evening, after serious climbing we reached the top at 5 in the morning. The climbing experience is breathtaking. View of sunrise is majestic. Always keep painkiller spray, water and some food in your backpack. Wear warm clothes during night.
  • Incredible place to visit, especially with a clear sky! The mountain is beautiful against a bright blue sky, and it's very nice for photographs. It also has interesting facts and history behind it. We went on a tour with Japan Panoramic Tours and they were very organised. Our guide was named Akriti and was super friendly and had lots to tell us about Mount Fuji! Excellent trip to go on.
