Description

Join me for a 3-day ascent of Mount Fuji from the base and catch a majestic sunrise! A highly recommended climbing trip to the most iconic mountain in Japan.

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.

Please contact me if you want to enjoy a unique experience ascending the highest peak in my country!

Mountain Guide

I am a JMGA mountain guide based in the seaside town of Miura in Kanagawa prefecture, offering a mix of outdoors guiding activities in both the mountains and the sea. What I value the most in guiding is to of course guide my clients safely but also for my clients to spend a quality time in the rich nature. Exposing yourself in the rich nature by taking part in outdoor activities, and by removing everything in between you and the nature, I believe that you’ll be able to experience the extraordinary. It could be the overwhelming feel from witnessing the change in landscapes through seasons, or that you learnt to speak to your own body and heart, or that you deepened the understanding of the local area, and of course it could be that precious moment where you can experience this together with other people!

I am also certified in Japan Avalanche Network (JAN) at Level 2.
In the summer, I guide in the mountains, mainly in the North Japan Alps, and sea kayak, and in the winter I take clients backcountry skiing.
Whatever the discipline, my focus is always for my clients to be able to “feel” and to be one with the nature. The integral part of the fun is to interact with the locals, to meet the local culture, and to breathe in the air there as a total package!
So, in the summer I like to take clients deep into the mountains accessed by using both the sea kayak and your climbing / hiking skills, as well as staying in tents at night. I think it is a pity if you only spend time in the mountains or only in the sea!
And in the winter, I’d like to show my clients that backcountry skiing is not all about chasing powder but it is about getting joy from the mountains in totality.

I am looking forward to meeting you and sharing a quality time in the land of varying seasonal beauties!
