  • Climbing the highest and the most iconic mountain in Japan
  • Enjoy breathtaking views along the trail
  • Reach the volcanic summit of Mount Fuji


Mount Fuji (3776m) is the highest and the most iconic mountain in Japan. On this one-day climb, we will enjoy setting off very early to reach the sacred summit of this amazing peak and return by the afternoon.

Due to the high altitude, we will walk above the tree line. You will enjoy the magnificent views along the trail of the town, lakes, and even the Pacific Ocean below.

Mount Fuji is located at a 1.5 hr. drive away from Tokyo. In order to tackle the lovely Fuji in one day, we will need to rise very early. I will pick you up at your hotel around the Kawaguchiko area and we will drive up to the starting point. If you have your own transfer, we can meet at the parking lot at the bottom of Mount Fuji at 4.30 am. *Due to the road restrictions, we will take a taxi from the parking to the 5th station during the peak season (JUL to AUG). The taxi costs about 15,000yen. per one way.

We will start climbing at 5 am. It will take us around 5 - 6 hours to reach the summit and then around 4 hours to come back down to the parking lot. We will be back at around 4 - 5 pm. After the climb, I will take you back to your hotel in the Kawaguchiko area or to the train station around Mt. Fuji.

Don't miss the chance to climb this iconic mountain in Japan. Contact me today and let's start planning an unforgettable Mount Fuji ascent!

About the guide

I'm a JMGA certified hiking and ski guide and UIMLA mountain leader. I've traveled more than 50 countries as tour guide of trekking, skiing, cycling tour. I've visited overseas mountains such as Europe Alps, Canadian Rockies, New Zealand, Patagonia. I stayed in Zermatt, Switzerland for 4 years as trekking and skiing guide.

Even I traveled many countries, I also love to walk and ski the beautiful mountains in Japan. We have distinct four seasons, volcanos, hot springs in our mountain areas.
My favorite mountain area is the North Japan Alps, Mt. Fuji and Yatsugatake mountains. Of course sake and tasty Japanese food too!

I hope you to enjoy the nature, culture and communication with Japanese people during your stay in Japan. Looking forward to enjoying Japanese mountains with you!

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.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
