Top Mountain Climbing Trips in Mount Fuji
Located in the island of Honshu, Mount Fuji (3776 m) is the highest mountain in Japan and a legendary symbol of the country. Fuji has also been a place of pilgrimage for centuries, as one of Japan’s three holy mountains. The climbing season goes from early July to September. However, you can also climb Mount Fuji from April to May, in a much colder weather and with some snow on the trails. Although it is not a difficult climb, you need to be in good shape in order to reach the summit. Take your pick from our selection below and climb this mythical mountain in Japan!

I am rating my experience with Exlore-Share and my Guide Chikako Hayashi % Star +!
The platform was user friendly both in the search/selection phase and also in settling the agreement with the guide.
Chikako is an amazing guida and a wonderful person.
She is competent, attentive, friendly and very experienced. It was a pleasure to spend the day with her: she made the hike interesting and rewarding.
The Mt Fuji hike is quite challenging, especially the last part of the ascent because of the snow and the steep incline but mostly the descent is nerve wrecking (in a nice way) because it is entirely slippery because of the type of terrain.
Thank you again for taking us up Mt. Fuji today. We thoroughly enjoyed the hiking, but also loved spending time with you and learning more about Mt. Fuji, Japan, Japanese culture, Japanese religion, other things to do in your beautiful country, etc. Thank you also for picking us up at our hotel, for letting us use your crampons and for helping us return what we rented from Yamarent. Please feel free to use us as a reference if any of your clients want to know about our experience with you. Will easily give you a 6 star rating on a scale of 1-5. Would love to come back and do a trip with you in the Japanese Alps. By the way, I never found the big sushi with shrimp and mayo. Gotta believe Norm ate it. His cold is better, though, so letting him have it is the least I could have done.
Our trip went flawlessly. Chika is a true professional who put together a trip that my wife and I will not soon forget. The route was challenging, airy exhilirating and we wouldn’t change a thing.
Best experience of our life and was definitely made better with Chikako guiding us. She is an expert in hiking and did everything to make sure we are ok. Communication from the start was perfect and everything well organised.
The trip was absolutely amazing and Chika was the best. After fours days of backpacking in Japan, Chika picked up my daughter and I at the hotel at Yamanakako early in the morning and brought us to Mt Fuji. During the drive, Chika shared with us her background and expereince in climbing and guiding mountains and back country ski trips throughout the Japan and the world. We actually saw a bear along the side of the road at Mt Fuji during our drive to station 5. During the ascent, it was evident, Chika’s primary concerns were safety and a successful ascent. The climb was paced perfectly for our fitness level, and the hike around the crater at the top provided amazing views due to the perfect weather. Chika’s great personality, knowledge of the outdoors and Japanese history kept the conversation flowing and enriched the entire experience. Anyone visiting Japan with an adventurous spirit should climb Mt Fuji, and I highly recommend using Chika as your guide. Without reservation, she is the best!
Our Mount Fuji off season climb was wonderful; an experience that both Angie and I will remember the rest of lives.
Cveto, our mountain guide, was superb. He is not only an expert in the field of mountain climbing that made us feel safe throughout the climb to the summit, but also a person that went beyond expectations to make the mountain experience memorable in every way. Cveto is not only an expert climber, but also an exceptional person with a carefree and adventurous personality.
Thank you for making a dream come through for both of us.

Cveto was an amazing guide whose expertise and experience made the climb very fun and exciting. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for an amazing outdoor adventure
Amazing! Cveto was experienced, professional, & went the extra mile to check on me the night before to ensure I was prepared. He was encouraging but also realistic regarding conditions & limitations. This was my 1st climb (1st time seeing snow actually!) and as a beginner he was patient w/ me and gave clear instructions-I always felt safe. Highly, highly recommend! Reaching the summit was an unforgettable experience. Thank you for everything. -solo female traveler
Ren was truly fantastic. Prior to, during and after our tour he took care of everything he could so that we had an amazing experience. As a seasoned climber I was nervous about my girlfriend keeping up with us but Ren not only made the journey possible but also was the sole reason she enjoyed herself as much as she did while summiting. His humor and caring also made some of the smallest things a non issue and the biggest problems, no problem at all. Truly an amazing guide and phenomenal person.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
