3-day Mt Fuji ascent from the base


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.

Not specified

3 Days



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.
