Why FYG?

Mt.Fuji has become a symbol of JAPAN same as Cherry blossoms. Fuji is not a technical peak,
but not everyone successfully reaches the summit. The most important factor affecting the success rate is
the time you spend acclimatizing on the mountain. Our professional guides have been leading groups up to the summit
with comfortable pace and rhythm.

Each group will be accompanied by a guide who is certified either JMGA[Japan Mountain Guide Association]
or Fuji-Yoshida City certified Mt.Fuji Guide. All guides have a wilderness first aid certification.
Guides practice rescue senarios and safety mountain travel skills.
We have a good relationship with the local rescue services.

History and culture
