Description

Want to experience the thrill of ascending Mt. Fuji while avoiding the crowds? Look no further! We kindly invite you to a private ascent to this legendary mountain in Japan through the Prince Route - the best way to experience a crowd-free adventure.

With only two operating huts on this route, the total number of people is limited to fewer than 200 per day, unlike the thousands on other routes- so you won’t have to experience the human traffic jams typical of the other paths.

Our hut is a family-run business offering the best food on the mountain. For dinner, you can enjoy all-you-can-eat curry and rice with plenty of vegetables and meat. Breakfast includes unlimited rice and miso soup, along with fried eggs and sausage - you will definitely not go hungry on this trip.

Our carefully planned departure times allow us to avoid the mountain crowds. We enjoy a fantastic view of the sunrise from our hut, and then head to the summit after thousands of people have started their descent. Over the years, we have refined this schedule and found it to be the best way to appreciate the mountain. If you are determined to watch the sunrise from the summit, please find another tour, as we will not alter our schedule.

This is your chance to experience Mt. Fuji like royalty: personalized service, stunning views, and delicious food. Contact us today!
