Where to stay in Fuji National Park

Cities around the volcano, such as Fujinomiya and Fujiyoshida, offer a good range of accommodations, including guesthouses, hotels, and rental apartments. Head to the lakes to find scenic retreats with onsens and a scattered few hostels, guesthouses, and simple hotels in the surrounding towns. Seasonal campsites provide a good option for more budget-conscious travelers, as do basic, shared huts at some of the hill stations on the route up the volcano. Advance reservations for the huts are strongly recommended because of limited space.
