  • Details

This is the finnest climbing tour in Japan!

IMG_4189 Challenge yourself and reach the peak of Mount Fuji as the sun rises over the horizon on this 2-day hike. A guide leads you on the Fujinomiya trail up the slopes, pausing to rest overnight before reaching the summit at sunrise. Experience different sights during your descent on the Gotenba trail.
  • Day 1: Fujinomiya Trail to the Ninth Station
  • Mount Fuji is divided into 10 stations, of which the first 5 are paved. Your hike begins at the Fujinomiya fifth station, the head of the Fujinomiya trail at 7,874 feet (2,400 m) above sea level. After some time to get used to the altitude, start trekking on the rugged trail, the Suruga Bay opening up below you. Once you reach the seventh station around midday, break for lunch in one of the craters created by the Hoei eruption in 1707. Continue your hike in the afternoon, arriving at the ninth station in the evening. Find your hut and get settled for the night.
  • Day 2: Sunrise & Gotenba Trail
  • Your day starts early in anticipation of seeing the sunrise from Mount Fuji's peak. Power through the rest of your climb and emerge at the top of Kengamine Peak, the highest point of the mountain and in Japan, in time to see the sun emerging over the horizon. Bask in the exhilaration of having successfully conquered the mountain as light dawns on you, and spend time savoring the view. Later, begin your descent on the Gotenba trail, which features an exciting section of loose lava gravel that you can safely run down. After lunch in the Hoei crater, arrive at the Gotenba fifth station and return to your hotel.
