Volcano Mountain
A widely recognized symbol of Japan, Mount Fuji boasts the nation's highest peak, an inspiration to artists for many centuries. At 3,776 m (12388 ft) high, this active volcano can be seen from both Tokyo and Tokohama on a clear day. You can also view the mountain by taking a train ride from Tokyo to Osaka. Climbers gain access to several routes on the mountain during July and August, though most tourists prefer to experience this attraction from a distance. Put Mount Fuji on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Fuji National Park vacation trip planner.

  • Friendly staff on the day of the 7/1 mountain to Lake Kawaguchi. Just launch the Fireworks, with quite crowded. It is from this summer.

  • I climbed Mount Fuji in July. Despite being summer and be hot down there, as will rising, the weather gets nice. At the top, at night it gets very cold!! You don't have to be a professional climber, but you have to have the mood to climb. Recommend taking just enough to not weigh in the middle of the journey, without leaving to take essential items, such as clothes, food and drinks. In fact you can buy along the way, but the price is pretty steep. For example, the drinks that the normal cost around 160 yen, up there costs 500 yen. Unique experience! Recommend!

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.
