Mount Fuji Off-Season Snow Climb


* Climb Japan's most emblematic mountain in the off season.

* Enjoy an uncrowded ascent to the Mount Fuji summit.

* Discover Mount Fuji on an unforgettable snow climb with the help of certified guides.


On this 1-day Mount Fuji snow climb, you will have the chance to experience an uncrowded ascent in unique conditions of Japan's most symbolic mountain.

During May and June, right before the crowds arrive at Mount Fuji, this beautiful peak glitters under clear weather, welcoming well-trained climbers that dare to explore its snow-capped slopes. Due to the snow and because the huts are closed, the mountain is uncrowded, which allows off-season visitors to enjoy its unique views and beauty all the more.

To accomplish the Fuji summit, we will spend the night before the climb at the Mount Fuji base so that we can get an early start. We will reach the summit in the afternoon and then return.

Climbing Mount Fuji in the off-season is more challenging than in the summer months. Therefore, it is important to be properly trained and to go with a certified guide that can evaluate the route and conditions. The rewards are well worth the effort!
