Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep


In the island of Honshu, Mount Fuji (3776 m) stands as the most distinguished feature of the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park. Join me for a beautiful trek around this iconic peak of Japan!

We can go for 1 or 2 days of hiking to the surroundings of Mount Fuji, depending on your time and the mountain you would like to visit.

I can pick you up from your hotel near the mountain or a station area. Otherwise, we can meet at Shinjyuku-station and travel from there using public transport.

I can offer you many different itineraries. These are some of the options:

  • Myoujyo Trail: Altitude difference is 800m but there are many ups and downs. It is a 10-km walk in total, which takes around 6 hours to complete.

  • Mt.Kintoki Trail: Altitude differenc is 550m. It is a 5-km walk and takes 3-4h to complete.

Please bring proper hiking shoes, lunch and a drink.

A third option is the Shichimen-san (1,982 m – 6,502 ft), which takes 2 days. This tour involves staying overnight at pilgrims’ lodgings in a temple in the mountain. A truly inspiring and one of a kind experience.

For these hikes, I can take groups of between 1 and 4 hikers.

If you are interested in any of these hiking programs in Tokyo, request your booking! I would love to show you around these amazing places in the near future. 

Also, you can have a look at another program I guide, theGuided hiking tour around Mt Fuji.

About the guide

I was born in Tokyo, Japan, and am a JMGA certified hiking guide with a 10 years guiding experience. I've been assistant guiding for far longer before that both in rock climbing and in ski mountaineering.
I travel a lot myself to mountains outside of Japan and my wish is now to also be able to show the visitors from abroad the beautiful mountains and the culture of Japan. Japan is not just about powder snow. I'd like to share with you my experiences in the Japanese mountains and dive into the rich Japanese culture at the same time.

I also run a travel agency registered in Tokyo so I can organise packaged mountain tours for you! Please contact me if you're interested in getting to know more about our mountains!
