Mount Fuji (3776m), the highest mountain in Japan, is a sacred mountain and one of the most iconic symbols of this fascinating country. I’d like to invite you to join me for a 1-day off-season climb, to enjoy all the natural beauty and peace Mount Fuji offers at this time of the year.

The ascent of Mount Fuji is as very popular trek during summer, so we would avoid the crowds. Climbing Mount Fuji during the off-season offers a more relaxed and peaceful approach, with less people on the trails.

This tour is available from early June till June 27th, and from September 10th till middle of October. Please note in June I can take up to 2 people on this tour, depending on how much snow is left on the trails. In September and October the guide ratio is up to 4 people.

I will pick you up from your hotel around 5:00 am and we will begin to climb in the early morning, around 6:00 am. Once we reach the summit, we will be rewarded with amazing views. We will be back around 5:00 pm. Please note you need an intermediate fitness level to join this tour.

If you want to join me on this 1-day climb to this symbolic mountain in Japan, just send me a request and we will start planning your Mount Fuji ascent. If you’d prefer to come in the summer, check out my Mount Fuji 2-day climbing tour.

About the guide

guide profile img

I am a Mt Fuji guide and a backcountry ski guide, certified by the JMGA. I was born in Tokyo but currently live in Fuji-Yoshida city, located at the foot of Mt Fuji. Teaching was something that interested me since my school years, and thus chose to join a specialized college for coaching, instructorship, and sports biology, where I also started climbing and skiing in the mountains. After my graduation, I worked as a ski patrol for 10 years, 5 of which I worked through the year - Hakuba in the winter (of northern hemisphere) and in Methven, New Zealand in the summer (of northern hemisphere), and a backcountry ski guide for 10 years.

My main and favourite field of guiding is on and around Mt Fuji, but backcountry skiing is my favourite mountain sports! I guide backcountry skiing mainly around Hakuba areas but also have been a guide in Hokkaido for 2 years, and know Furano and Niseko areas very well. I also currently teach Japan Avalanche Network level 1 courses on avalanche risks and safety. I also enjoy rock climbing in my free time and love to share with you the beauty of the Japanese mountains through my favourite guiding routes, let it to be in trekking the mountains, snowshoeing with an onsen stay or backcountry skiing in Hakuba areas!

For me, mountains are a part of my life. It teaches me upsides and downsides of life, and I want guests to join me in this environment to realize the conveniences that surround us in our ordinary life and to be grateful of everything that lets us live.

I guide visitors from abroad quite frequently. Contact me if you’re also up for fun mountain adventures!!
