Join Koji, a JMGA certified guide, on this 3-day ascent to the summit of Japan's most sacred mountain. A truly once-in-a-lifetime experience!


3 Days

Jul - Sep




Mt. Fuji is a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2013, but Mt Fuji is not just about the climb to the summit but a package with the beautiful nature and view around it. I would like to offer a trip which combines the Japanese tradition in the vicinity of Fuji, beauty of natural spring water from the area and the climb of Mt Fuji itself. The spring water around Mt Fuji is used to brew Japanese Sake and for the making of Japanese traditional food such as Soba. In Oshino, there is a lake filled with this spring water, which is transparent all the way to the bed of the lake, and you can also witness the outflow of spring water from the bed of the lake.

Doing this Fuji trip in 3 days will allow us to be more flexible and adapt to weather conditions, and spend some time enjoying the cultural environment surrounding Mt. Fuji.

Fitness Level: You must have good general fitness and it would be recommended if you work on regular cardiovascular exercises.

Itinerary Day 1: Meet at Kawaguchiko station (or Gotenba Station) in the morning. We enjoy the relaxing cultural tour by visiting the traditional Soba making factory and sources of Mt Fuji spring water. This day will serve as an acclimatisation day, as we spend our time at an altitude of around 1,000m.

Day 2: We move to the car park to take the bus together to Mt Fuji 5th station (2350m). After 1 hour acclimatization, we start the hike up through Yoshida route of Mt. Fuji and stay at one of the higher mountain huts for the night.

Day 3: We start early and summit Mt Fuji, followed by a descent all the way down to the car park. I will drop you off at a station of your convenience.

More info

Best Period: July - end of Sep (For those experienced with crampons, the season can start from May)

Most mountain huts shut from mid September onwards, except for Sato hut. However, it is better if we can stay overnight at a hut higher than Sato hut to make the summit day easier. Thus, I recommend for you to schedule your climb before most of the huts close in mid September.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
