Mt. Fuji 5th Station Hiking (Round-trip from Mt. Fuji)

ORDER NOW
  1. An English-speaking Government Licensed Guide Interpreter who is knowledgeable on Mt. Fuji’s terrain and history will guide participants while thoroughly explaining all about the charms of this iconic peak. This approximately 2-hour hiking tour takes customers to Mt. Fuji’s deep, unique world which can’t be seen by just reading a guidebook or walking along a mountain path.
  2. [July 1 – Sept. 10 Departures] Depart from Mt. Fuji 5th Station and hike to the 6th Station. Experience walking the first section of the most popular route in modern day Mt. Fuji climbing, as well as part of the old route, a path rich in history since the time of mountain worship. Recommended for those who don’t have time but still want to try climbing Mt. Fuji.
  3. [June 1-30, Sept. 11 – Oct. 31 Departures] During periods aside from the mountain climbing season (for safety reasons, there are restrictions to Mt. Fuji mountain trails), the tour will hike along part of the Ochudo trail, which circled around Mt. Fuji along the forest line. This mountain trail was considered as one of the highest levels of ascetic practices, as only those who have reached the summit of Mt. Fuji at least three times were allowed to walk on it. There are stone-paved sections as well, making it easy even for beginners. Feast your eyes on stunning scenery such as the forests, the summit, craters from past eruptions, Lake Motosu, Lake Kawaguchi, the Southern Alps, and many more from this pathway high up in the sky. An enjoyable hike on Mt. Fuji with a view of the season’s scenery, be it fresh foliage or vibrant autumn hues, is simply the best.
  4. All participants will receive a Mt. Fuji original commemorative souvenir!
