Mount Fuji (3776 m) is the highest peak in Japan and a legendary symbol of the country. This iconic dormant volcano is one of Japan’s three holy mountains and it has been a place of pilgrimage for centuries.

I offer you the possibility of climbing this mythical mountain, joining a group on a 2-day guided ascent tour. On the first day, we will meet in Tokyo, at Shinjyuku Station. From there we will head to the mountain. We will stop at Mount Fuji shrine to pray for a safe climb, a local tradition we  keep up.

Then we will have lunch at Mount Fuji’s 5th station. At 1pm we will start hiking towards the 7th station, where we will have dinner and spend the night.

On the second day, we will wake up very early, at 2:30am,  starting the climb at 3.30. We will enjoy a spectacular sunrise in the 8th station, and continue our climb to Mount Fuji summit. You will get some truly spectacular panoramic views from the top.

We will arrive back down to the 5th station around 12.30. There is an optional visit to Onsen Hot Spring before we return to Shinjuku Station in Tokyo.

If you want to reach the summit of Mount Fuji, just check the dates below, book your trip and join a group for an unforgettable guided ascent to this mythical peak in Japan.



You will receive a full refund in case we don't reach the minimum number of people required for this trip (3 people).

About the guide

guide profile img

I was born in Tokyo and grew up skiing in Hakuba, Japan. Throughout the years, I have visited Alaska, Peru, Patagonia, New Zealand, Nepal and Canada for winter climbing and backcountry snowboarding.

In 2012, I became the first Japanese person to pass the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides's ski guiding course on a Snowboard. I have been guiding in Japan (Hakuba Nagano and Mt. Fuji), New Zealand and Canada for over 15 years.
