  • I'm glad I did the climb and made it to the summit. It was an experience. Make sure you buy the climbing stick and get all the stamps on every stages. I don't recommend it for kids. Bring cold gear. W...  more »
  • We take the bus of local tour that llagaba to the 5th station of the monte, the journey is entertaining with beautiful views and the price razonable(en tour era mucho mas caro). Went in autumn and was cold, is necessary to go warm, by that buy clothes there is expensive. The view was beautiful as we were on a good sunny day. There is trade in clothes, food varied and souvenirs in the sector.

  • If you thought that at any time can go by car, under the influence of the snow could not go. I can hear the phone will tell you where paying toll at the entrance.

  • Be careful to check toll booth opening hours. A warning for travellers planning to hike overnight out of season: the road can be closed overnight meaning you can't get up to the 5th station. The weather was great when we drove up at about 9pm and we found out by making lots of enquiries down in kawaguchoko that it wouldn't open til 3am. No info only about this so you just need to enquire on the day.
  • This is the start of the Mt Fuji climb using the upper portion of the Yoshida trail. It is super cool to climb higher and higher and still see guest huts serving Ramen and stamping your walking sticks. I consider this a bucket list climb and recommend that anybody go to the fight station even if they don't hike any higher.
  • Not sure how to rate a rest stop. But it's pretty much hotels for people to stay in before attempting the summit of Fuji, souvenir shops, some food shops, and then a shrine in the back. This place also has a large public restroom and some scenic outlooks that I didn't see because everywhere was shrouded in fog. Also, I came from Tokyo around 85F and it was about 50s at this stop.
  • The views up are stunning - even though we went though cloud to get there. Shops are OK pricing though not a lot of food options. Unless you like corn.
  • Nice place to start climbing to Mt.Fuji, buses to Shinjuku, Kawaguchiko station, Gotenba station etc ..
