Once you have confirmed your Mt. Fuji climb with us, you have the option of renting essential hiking equipment. Renting with us means that you won't have to haul all of your outdoor gear through airports and train stations. Items can be rented separately up until one week before your climb date:
Notes: Due to the inherent risk involved in high-altitude pursuits, and in the interest of your safety, we strongly recommends that all participants purchase travellers insurance that provides full medical and emergency evacuation coverage in Japan.
