Description

Mount Fuji, located about 100km south-west of the capital Tokyo, is Japan’s highest peak and a spectacular natural phenomenon.

At 3,766m of altitude it is the second highest island peak in Asia and the views from its summit are unforgettable.

Featured within Japanese mythology, this dormant volcano is one of the ‘three holy mountains’. Mt Fuji is heavily intertwined in Japanese culture.

Here’s your chance to explore this magnificent wonder in the company of a local and internationally certified mountain guide.

We will meet in Tokyo at Shinjyuku and then head for the mountain. We will stop at the Mt Fuji shrine so as to pray for safe climbing, a local tradition we like to uphold.

We will enjoy lunch at Mt Fuji’s 5th station on the Fuji Subaru line, which lies about half way between the peak and the base.

We will begin hiking at 1pm and then make our way to the 7th station where we will have dinner and spend the night.

The next day we will wake up early at 5:30am and after breakfast we will have a 5-6 hour roundtrip from the hut to the summit.

You will get some truly amazing photos from the summit, 360 degree panoramics that will be hard to match.

We will arrive back down to the 5th station around 2pm and then we should arrive to Tokyo at 6pm.

If you would like to reach the summit of Mt Fuji and discover this stunning landscape and mythical location then sign up now and I’ll be waiting to show you its beauty!
