Follow a certified mountain guide on a 3-day climbing trip to Mount Fuji. A unique ascent of Japan's most iconic peak, through Yoshida route.
While most typical tours offer only a 50% ascent of this peak, this program allows you to enjoy Mount Fuji to the fullest!
We’ll take Fuji Yoshida route, one of the most popular trails, which lies at the the North Eastern aspect. Due to its location, you’ll be able to see a breathtaking sunrise from any part of the trail, even if you are not on the summit.
Along the way, I will tell you the history of this sacred volcanic mountain and other important historical facts.
Mount Fuji is the most popular tourist site in Japan so it’s usually a very crowded destination. I recommend you to do this trip during week days, when the mountain huts tend to be less packed.
In order to avoid crowds, I propose to go out very early in the morning on the second day. We’ll start hiking at 3.30 AM using head lamps. That way, we can reach the summit at 11 AM and have time to spend 2 hours traversing around the summit crater. The highest peak of Mount Fuji is Kengamine and it’s the highest point in Japan at 3776 m.
However, you should have in mind that if you come here on early July, you may not be able to go for the round trip around the crater. It will depend on the amount of snow left on the summit.
For further details, you can check the complete itinerary for this trip below this description.

Jun is a responsible and reliable guide. He is also knowledgeable on the local flora and fauna and managed to show us quite a few interesting alpine flowers, birds and animals. He is kind and helpful and converses well in English. I will not hesitate to recommend him to any anyone needing an English speaking guide in Japan.
Just back from Hakuba –Japan and I’m so pleased to confirm we got such a great experience with Iwao who has provided a service above all expectations. Indeed assisting a family confronted to a new environment requires a certain level of patience and attention and all the family appreciated his sense of responsibilities and seriousness which allowed us to really enjoy this region by experiencing touring, hicking and of course skiing in immaculate powder. Iwao was very discreet but always acted to ensure we could take the best of all Hakuba mountains could offer to us during these 5 days.This experience will for sure remain in all our minds for long and this will be mainly thanks to Iwao ! Best, Arnaud
We had a wonderfull ski touring trip with Iwao in Gunma. Iwao brought us in various beautifull landscapes to found very good spring snow. He is a very professional guide that can adapt to clients will and conditions! We had great time sharing our experiences about nature and mountains. The second day, we had a long tour with beautiful views on gunma\'s region and finissing along a river in an amazing forest. It was great fun to wait the last train in the midel of nowhere at sunset to come back to our village! Iwao has perfectly organised the trip bringing me to nice local onsen, restaurant and hôtel! Wonderfull trip to recommand!
