Mt Fuji

Mount Fuji is Japana€?s tallest peak.  Standing at approximately 3776 meters or 12,388 feet, this volcanic cone is always capped with snow and a majestic sight to see with your own eyes.  Mount Fuji or Fuji-san to the Japanese last erupted in 1707 when large amounts of volcanic ash rained on the city of Tokyo.

Today, on most clear days, you can see Mt Fuji from Tokyo, 100km (62miles) away.  The best times of the year to get a good view is in the late autumn until early spring when there are fewer clouds in the sky.  The morning times are usually best because the clouds and haze often develop during the afternoon.

If you wish to climb Mt Fuji, the official open climbing season is from July to August.  This time period is when the mountain is most easily climbable.  You can climb Mount Fuji anytime of the year however it is advised that only expert mountaineers should attempt the climb.  Also, out of climbing season, you will probably have limited transportation services and sleeping huts accessible to you. 


Getting there

Bus:  There are many ways to get to Mt Fuji from Tokyo.  There are hourly buses from the Tokyo bus station that take approximately 2.5 hours to reach the bottom of the summit.  Check the Tokyo bus station for times departing and returning.

Train:  The closest stations are the Fujiyoshida station and the Gotemba 5th station.  The Fujiyoshida is where the Fuji Five Lakes (Fuji-goko) are, a group of five small lakes in Yamanashi.  Gotemba is one of the longest and toughest access routes to climb the summit.
