Schedule is not so busy. We have a lot of time!
On the first day, we will start from Fuji Subaru Line 5th Station (2,305m/7,560ft) on the Yoshida Route.
The departure time is set late so that we can avoid the crowds. We will climb slowly and stay at the mountain lodge (2,790M/9,150ft) at 7th station.
On the morning of the second day, we will watch the sunrise in front of the lodge. During the day, the trail is not as congested as it is just before the sunrise. You will be able to climb comfortably on the quiet trail. After arriving at the summit, if the weather and your physical condition are good, we will go around the crater and reach Kengamine peak (3,776m/12,390ft) where the highest point on Mt. Fuji. After reaching the summit, we will descend to the 8th station and stay overnight at Taishikan Hut(3,100m/10170ft).
In the morning of the third day, we will watch the sunrise near the lodge and then depart. Let’s descend slowly to 5th station of the Fuji Subaru Line.
- A private tour — the pace can be customized to match your fitness level and preferences.
- We stay at the 7th station on the first day and gradually acclimatize our bodies to the altitude, which makes it difficult to get altitude sickness.
- Climbing during the day and not during the night, you will not lose your physical rhythm.
- During the day, there is no traffic jam like before the sunrise, so you can walk at your own pace and enjoy the scenery as you climb to the summit.
- The descent, which is physically and mentally demanding, is divided into two days. The load on the legs on the way down is twice as much as on the way up, and most of the trouble occurs on the way down, so we avoid that.
- This tour is recommended for those who are not confident in their physical strength and for children in elementary school and the elderly.
