Experience the cultural tradition of a Japanese onsen after climbing Mt. Fuji by relaxing in a natural hot spring. The volcanic region around Mt. Fuji is home to some of the best onsens, which offer a rejuvenating and refreshing way to soothe sore muscles and heal with volcanic mineral water.
For Japanese climbers, enjoying an onsen after conquering Mt. Fuji is an essential post-climb ritual - some might even say it's just as important as the climb itself. In fact, it's a standard part of any local Japanese Mt. Fuji climbing tour. But we understand that not everyone is comfortable with the open bath culture of an onsen, which is why we've made it optional for all of our Mt. Fuji climbs. So, whether you're looking to embrace the local tradition or prefer to return to the comfort of your own hotel to freshen up, we've got you covered.
First-time visitors to Japan might feel hesitant about entering an onsen, where you'll be required to bathe nude with others of the same sex in hot mineral water. While it's understandable to want to skip this new experience, doing so means you'll miss out on the chance to soothe your sore muscles and rejuvenate your body after climbing Mt. Fuji. Instead, you'll be stuck on a crowded bus for several hours, dirty, smelly, and uncomfortable. If you have the opportunity, we highly recommend trying an onsen experience after climbing Mt. Fuji - your body (and possibly even your mind) will thank you.
