  • Terrific one day trip packed with lots to see and a great guide. While we could only get to the first station due to weather the night before, the views there were good and the views from Lake Kawaguc...  more »

  • Mount Fuji fifth station is a place where fresh air roams around freely. There are many shops where you can buy iconic souvenirs and interesting food. I myself have enjoyed thoroughly there. However, do be aware that there are some big wasps flying around and can be quite annoying. On days with clear sky, you can see Mount Fuji clearly. It is a remarkable sight, seeing the mountain top up close. The climate up there is quite chilly although not that cold in my opinion. Do bring a jacket or two if you go to visit.
  • Although it's clearly s touristy area, it's still a beautiful to visit. The view is spectacular, especially on a clear day. The cool air provides immediate relief from the oppressive hot summer air. It does get a little chilly at station five but otherwise the sure just feels refreshing. The station does have the standard touristy amenities. If you're looking to avoid it, there is a shrine that you can visit. There are also numerous spots that provide an opportunity for breathtaking photos. Not only are there cloud advice you but also below. If Fuji is hidden behind cloud, just wait. The passing wind will clear it up. Otherwise a quick to to the shrine and a yen offering to the ancestors will get the wind to move the clouds.
  • The whole rest area is VERY touristy, but the view of the mountains is great, not so much for the view of Mt. Fuji itself, can only see the top bit. It's good for sending specially stamped postcards but there are much better selection of well-designed and cheaper postcards next door in 富士山みはらし. Not sure if the post office staff will still help adding special stamps when sending external postcards though.
  • Nice place, too many tourists and people waiting for hiking. If you are social talk to anyone and have fun. Shops, restaurants and some nice things to look at. The view is nice (if its not cloudy).
  • very beautiful place to go. you can shop some japan`s Souvenirs and memorabilia . also you can eat and drink in this very beautiful place far from city`s rush. this place is very quiet and relaxing place. don`t miss ice-cream there. from this station you can go for climbing the fuji mountain.
