  • Discover the most iconic mountain in Japan.

  • Enjoy the breathtaking views surrounding Mount Fuji.


Only 100 kilometers away from Tokyo, enjoy the beauty of the most iconic peak in Japan on a 1-day climbing trip.

The official climbing season for Mount Fuji goes from June to September: that is, during summer.

As this is a 1-day climbing trip, it will start really early, in the middle of the night! I will pick you up at your hotel in Kawaguchi-ko area. From there, we’ll travel by car to Mount Fuji’s ascent point.

However, if you have your own transfer, we can also meet at the car parking close to our trailhead (I will tell you the exact point).

It will take us between 4 and 6 hours to reach the summit.

For the descent, we will take the same route, although that will depend on weather conditions. Along the way, we’ll enjoy some stunning views!

We’ll be back at the car parking around 4 or 5 in the afternoon. From there, I’ll take you back to your hotel at Kawaguchi-ko.

Are you planning a trip to Japan? Then you can’t miss going up to its more famous peak! Please contact me if you want to join me.

You can also consider this Mt Fuji ascent in the off season (mid April / May) depending on your travel dates.

Meeting point

Kawaguchi-ko area.

About the guide

I am an IFMGA mountain guide, also certified by the JMGA, born in Slovenia. Slovenia is known as one of the major sporting countries in the world - I used to compete at the Olympics representing Slovenia in Cross-country Skiing. After I left Slovenia, I travelled all over the world and ended up in Japan, where I have now lived for more than 20 years, mainly because I love the beautiful Japanese mountains too much, and I feel privileged to be able to enjoy these mountains through the entire four seasons.

I am based at the foot of the Japan Alps, in Nagano Prefecture. In the winter, we go climbing or skiing around Mt. Fuji or Yatsugatake and in the summer, we can enjoy shower-climbing or canoeing. It is my absolute pleasure to also take you and guide you in my home country in Slovenia.

In addition to guiding the mountains, I also enjoy having the opportunity to teach mountain climbing skills to every level of climbers. This is because I want everyone to enjoy Japanese mountains safely.

I am the first non-Japanese mountain guide registered with the Japan Mountain Guide Association. Please contact me if you would love to have great experiences in the mountains in all seasons with me!
