Description

Please join me for a 2-day hike on one of the routes leading to the top of Mount Fuji. This is the highest peak of Japan (3776 m) and an active stratovolcano. Its last eruption occurred in 1707.

The best period to climb it is usually between early July and mid September. The mountain is officially closed for the rest of the year and most mountain huts will be closed. Technical and fitness requirements are higher for summit attempts during the closed periods.

We will meet in Fujiyoshida and stay one night in one of the huts located on the volcano.

Ascending to the top is not that difficult. Only in some sections, the terrain becomes sharp and rocky. There are many signs throughout the way that inform the walkers of other possible dangers such as sudden wind gusts and rocks that can be loose. Although the true challenge of this climb lies in its stiffness and the fact that as you go higher the air becomes thinner.

We will wake up early on the 2nd day in order to reach the summit when the sun rises. We will then enjoy a beautiful 360° view on Honshu.

Does the climb of Mount Fuji sound interesting? Then get in touch with me and let’s plan this great hike together. It will be my pleasure bringing you up there and sharing with you my culture, the history of Japan… along the way.
