Ren, a local JMGA mountain guide, wants to guide you on a 2-day climbing trip of Mount Fuji, the highest and most famous mountain in all of Japan!
Mount Fuji (3,776m) is one of the most famous mountains in the world. It is also one of the 3 holy mountains of Japan. Located just 100 kilometres from Tokyo, on clear days, you can even see it from the city.
Mount Fuji is so much more than a mountain, it is a legendary symbol of Japan. Both profound and beautiful, being able to climb this peak and stand on its summit is a mesmerizing experience. And because it is open to all climbing skill levels, almost anybody can join me on this breathtaking 2-day trek.
The adventure will start at JR Mishima station, where we will take the bus to the 5th station. From there, we will go to the Fujinomiya trailhead, where we will acclimatize at 2,380 metres while having lunch. After that, the trek will begin. We should reach the Akaiwa mountain hut (3,300m) at the 8th station by the afternoon. Once there, we will eat and rest for the night.
On the second day, we will wake very early, at 4:30 am. However, because of the early wake-up time, you will get to enjoy an absolutely stunning sunrise. After a Japanese breakfast, we will begin our ascent. We should reach the summit at approximately 8:30 am, where you get to revel at the amazing views. We will then make our descent to the Mount Hoei Volcanic Crater before returning to the 5th station.
Contact me if you would like me to guide you over the course of 2 days to the top of Mount Fuji, an incredible, magical mountain.
JR Mishima Station (accessible from Tokyo for about an hour ride by bullet train ca. JPY 4000 one way, accessible from Kyoto as well).

Ren was truly fantastic. Prior to, during and after our tour he took care of everything he could so that we had an amazing experience. As a seasoned climber I was nervous about my girlfriend keeping up with us but Ren not only made the journey possible but also was the sole reason she enjoyed herself as much as she did while summiting. His humor and caring also made some of the smallest things a non issue and the biggest problems, no problem at all. Truly an amazing guide and phenomenal person.
