What you'll do

Meet up at the Mt.Fuji Fujiyoshida route 8th station.
This experience target is the summit attack and crater trekking.

【8th - Original 8th】2hours / 3,000m - 3,400m
In midnight, we start to climb with a headlamp.
The path is well organized and easy, but you’ll struggle with cold, less oxygen, and maybe sleepy.
If the weather is clear, you can enjoy starry sky and night view of Tokyo. The sky gradually becomes brighter. We take a break for sunrise in a hut at the original 8th station.

【Original 8th - Summit】2hours / 3,400m - 3,750m
The path is similar. The summit is approaching in your sight. This is the most physically and mentally tough part. The last 30 min is a rocky part, you may use hands to support.
Going through “The Torii gate” of the summit shrine, you’ll be at the summit. I’ll take you to the shrine and a hat where hot drinks and noodles are available. You can buy good luck charm only available here.

【Crater trekking】1.5hours
This is the highest trekking route in Japan, turning around the Mt.Fuji crater. Path is flat except a heart beating slope to the peak(3,776m). You can see the magnificent crater and 360-degree​ dynamic view from Mt.Fuji. This is a gift for summiter.

【Summit - 5th】4hours / 3,750m - 2,300m
All the way go down to 5th station. The path is sandy and some part is steep. you’ll see a ​sea of clouds, coastline, mountains of Hakone, Japanese alps, etc

Meet your host, Kenji

Host on Airbnb since 2017
  • Identity verified
I am a professional Mt Fuji guide since 2004. I devoted myself 7 seasons so far and climbed Fuji more than 100 times.

Fuji is a special mountain. Not only the highest in Japan.
It is a noble peak, loved by many people for its beauty, and Fuji is a symbolic mountain and a home to the Japanese heart.

Fuji also has been a religious mountain for a long time. It climbed by many pilgrims from all over Japan. Even today, many Japanese have a desire to climb Mt. Fuji once in a lifetime. That is why it was registered as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site in 2013.

I’ll take risk management, pace control, climate judgment and advice for acclimatization and explain natural features and cultural background. Then, trust me, your summiting probability is overwhelmingly increased and your climbing gets ​totally different from the ​climbing​ alone.
