Join the certified guides at My Tokyo Guide on an unforgettable 2-day Mount Fuji climb with practical pick-up and drop-off options, and an optional restorative hot spring detour. Enjoy a breathtaking sunrise from the top of Japan's highest and most emblematic peak.


2 Days

Jul, Aug, Sep




  • Climb the emblematic Mount Fuji in Japan and be inspired by its beauty.
  • Join a practical Mount Fuji climb designed for your comfort.
  • Relax at some typical Japanese onsen (hotsprings), if you wish.


Climbing Mount Fuji is an experience that you will never forget, and on this 2-day adventure, we will make sure that you enjoy every comfort necessary to make your trip so memorable that you will want to return.

Mount Fuji is Japan’s highest volcano. At 3,776.24 m (12,389 ft), it stands tall and beautiful on the island of Honshu and receives a multitude of visitors every year. Furthermore, Fuji is one of Japan’s three sacred peaks, which makes it all the more special to discover.

On this program, we will pick you up at the Shin-Fuji station and then head to Fuji with a stop at a rental shop on the way. Once we start our ascent, we will take an alternative route to avoid the crowds, and after resting at the mountain hut, we will wake up very early and be on our way to the summit where we will enjoy an awe-inspiring sunrise. Then, we will return. You can find a detailed itinerary below.

So, are you ready for an unforgettable adventure in Japan? Then book your place and join us on this 2-day Mount Fuji climb. We look forward to guiding you!

We didn’t make it up Fuji because of the typhoon rains and winds, but we were given alternate accommodations, and the experience was still amazing :). (We made it between 7 and 8 when we decided to turn around)

It was a fantastic experience! The Fujinomiya trail is bit challenging but yet it is the shortest ascend with spectacular view. Both guides (Rico and Bali) are caring and supportive. They made sure everyone in the group kept up a good pace. I am glad I had joined this tour. It is highly recommended for a first time hiker or someone who would like to climb Mt. Fuji Fujinomiya trail.

Guide Bali was outstanding

Our guide BARLY was outstanding. He was experienced and had a clear appreciation of Mount Fuji. Everybody seemed to know him on the mountain. He gave us invaluable advice and one of our party, after discussing with him decided to cut his own rope 1,000 meters from the summit. It was a captain’s call for the team from Sydney.

I had encountered issue with a guide company which i booked initially through Explore Share and sought for support from Explore Share. The agent Nikki was very professional and patient, she managed to get us another guide after several days of looking and also advised on transfer of deposit from the first company to the new guide, Like what Nikki describes, the second guide Yusuke Hiroat is a real gem! He is not only a very experienced guide with over 350 trips to Mt Fuji but also very accommodating and passionate. He agreed to pick us up from our hotel instead of the station, brought us to visit a shrine for blessings before climbing and also drove us to see the Yama Naka Lake which has the whole of Mt Fuji as the background. The suggested route (Subashiri) also suits our group who are not experienced climbers. We strongly recommends Yusuke Hirota to anyone seeking an accommodating, gracious and experienced mountain guide. We wish Yusuke many blessings for all his climbs and in his life.
