  • Went there last Sept 2015. It was a 3-4hrs (not sure) drive from Saitama Prefecture, excluding the food stops. Seeing the Mt on far view was already breathtaking for me, but when reaching the 5th stat...  more »

  • I got to the fifth station through the bus, I took in Shinjuku Expreess Bus Station. Is very worthwhile. Are 2:00 and a half journey, but it is rewarding.

  • 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 ..
