Those who have not conquered it dream about it, those who have are forever inspired by it. Mount Fuji, the highest mountain in Japan with its unrivaled magnificence and beautiful conic shape, is the prominent and most recognized symbol of Japan. Our explorer is proud to take you on this once-in-a-life time adventure to experience nature at its finest.
Mt. Fuji Climbing Season; July 1st - Oct 1st: Only people lucky enough to visit Japan during this time have the opportunity to challenge themselves by climbing to the top of Mt. Fuji, Japan's highest peak and a spiritual site.
The two - day tour is an experience of a life time, however the climb is not for everyone, it takes a good 5 to 6 hours of physical effort and sometimes steep climbing to reach the top. Nonetheless, reaching the peak of Mount Fuji is very rewarding. As you stare down at the world below, and watch the sun rise, you feel a huge sense of accomplishment realizing just how high you have climbed, it is truly an satisfying memorable experience.
Your quest for Mt. Fuji begins at the 5th Station, the very point where the adventurer is unmistakably separated from the common tourist. You first embark on a 6-hour ascend to the 8th station, where you're joined by great camaraderie with like-minded active enthusiasts from around the globe. After a short rest in a rustic mountain hut, you advance in darkness on an overnight trek to the summit.
It is here where you witness the most spectacular sunrise of a lifetime. The amazing sunrise is followed by a challenging 4-hour descend to the 5th Station where you have the option of experiencing a relaxing Hot Spring "onsen" at one of the many beautiful onsens located around the base of Mt. Fuji Before returning to Tokyo.
