Access

By Bus

The easiest option for reaching the slopes of Mt.fuji is to take the bus from SHINJYUKU in Tokyo.
The direct bus takes 2-2.5 hours,depending on traffic,and takes you directly to the start of the climb at KAWAGUCHIKO 5th Station.To buy a ticket,take the WestExit at SHINJYUKU station.

By Train

There is no direct to Mt.Fuji by train,but you can get very close and change to a bus for the rest of the way.
From Tokyo, the two main staging points are FUJIYOSHIDA and GOTEMBA.This way allows you to use any of the ascent or descent routes.

Via Fujiyoshida

FUJIYOSHIDA can be reached by taking the JR Chuo Line to OTSUKI and changing to the Fujikyu Line.The Fujikyu Line passes through FUJIYOSHIDA to KAWAGUCHIKO, where hourly buses shuttle to the 5th STATION.
If you are planning to walk from the foot of the mountain,Fujiyoshida is also the starting point of the YOSHIDAGUCHI TRAIL.The sunrise takes place on this side of mountain.

Via Gotemba

If heading for the SUBASHIRI route take the JR Tokaido Line from Tokyo through ODAWARA to KOZU station then change tain for GOTEMBA.From SHINJYUKU take the Odakyu Line to SHIN-MATSUDA and walk to the neighboring Gotemba Line Matsuda Station.This local train usually runs just once per hour.
During official climbing season there are direct buses from the GOTEMBA station to the SUBASHIRI 5th STATION.
The SUBASHIRI-GUCHI TRAIL meets the YOSHIDA-GUCHI TRAIL around the 8th STATION.

YOSHIDA-GUCHI TRAIL

The YOSHIDA-GUCHI TRAIL leads from the KAWAGUCHIKO 5th STATION to the mountaintop.The most popular starting point is KAWAGUCHIKO 5th STATION which offers you a last chance to stock on supplies before heading out.It takes about 4km from here to The GORAIKO-KAN,and 6 hours slowly on foot.
The peak of the climbing season(20th of July to mid ofAugust), there are often huge crowds of people and you may have to wait at certain passing points.We recommend a plan having the time to climb,however,all the amenities will be open.

SUBASHIRI-GUCHI TRAIL

It takes about 6Km from the SUBASHIRI 5th STATION to The GORAIKO-KAN,and 7 hours slowly on foot.There is a separete path descending down the mountain back to KAWAGUCHIKO around the 8th STATION,be sure you take the right one !
You can descend a mountain in "a sand run" for exclusive use of the descent from a mountain around the 7th STATION.

Mountain Climbing

Mt.Fuji is a real mountain and should be treated with respect.
The recommended way of doing this,is to climb to a mountain hut around 7th or 8th station level on the first day, spend some hours sleeping there. Again you resume climbing at the break of day.
It is very cold on top.During summer, at the top it will be 5℃ or less during the night.
The temperature difference of the foot and the mountaintop is 20 degrees Celsius. You need proper clothes against low temperatures and strong winds,and also a hat and sunglasses, sunscreen lotion because sunlight is severe in the daytime.

Climbing Equipment

Take a lightweight back pack containing:
HAT, Face Towel, rain clothing, High-protein snacks(such as Energy bars), sturdy shoes, Flashlight(with extra batteries), SUNGLASSES, Japanese money(Coins as the toilet pay-per-use), SUNSCREEN, Drinks(Water bottle:2L), Grooves, Camera for the spectacular views!!, ID card, Bottle of Oxygen

登山靴

登山は足元から。できればハイカットやミドルカットの登山靴が良いです。 新品のまま登山するのではなく、履きならしてから登山をしてください。また登山靴と合わせて厚手のソックスも負担の軽減になります。

ザック

ザックは、必要なものを入れるために必ず準備します。急な雨に備えてザックカバーもあると安心です。装備品や着替え、行動食を入れますので30L程度の容量が必要です。 また体に合ったザックを選びましょう。

防寒着

フリースは、保湿性が高く、濡れてもすぐ乾くので登山向きです。 また薄手のダウンは軽量ですのでおすすめです。ザックに入れてもそれほど重さは気になりません。

レインウェア

登山にはレインウェアは必須です。天気予報が晴れでも必ず準備してください。またウィンドブレーカーとしても使用できます。ポンチョタイプですと風の影響を受けやすいので、セパレートタイプを準備してください。

帽子・サングラス

標高が高く、日差しがとても強いです。日射病や頭の保護のためにも帽子が必要です。紫外線対策としてUVカットされているサングラスは日差しから目を守ります。砂埃が舞いますので、目を守ったり、マスクをすることで口、鼻から侵入を防ぎます。

ヘッドライト

夜の登山にはヘッドライトは必需品です。夜の登山で登山道を照らしたり手元を見たりとヘッドライトを用意します。最近は軽く、明るく、防水タイプもあります。

ヘルメット・グローブ

突発的な噴火などに備えてヘルメットを持参しましょう。落石や転倒の際も頭部を守ってくれます。転倒や切り傷の予防のため手袋が必要です。岩場やクサリ場、ロープ場などは手を使って登る部分がありますので必需品です。

行動食

登山では気がつかないうちにエネルギーを消費してしまい、突然ガス欠で動けなくなることがあります。それを防ぐために、歩きながら何かしら口に入れる事でエネルギー補充をすることが大切です。

飲料水・携帯酸素

水分補給として水を持参します。登山道と比べ下山道には山小屋がないので、下山の際の給水にも使用します。1リットル以上入る容器で用意してください。疲労の軽減や高山病対策として酸素吸入は有効です。

その他

ビニール袋(濡れたものなどを入れられたり、ごみ袋としても)・ ペン・メモ用紙・タオル・ハンカチ・バンダナ・ティッシュ・ウェットティッシュ・ 時計・携帯電話・携帯電話用モバイルバッテリー・デジカメ・ 日焼け止め・ファーストエイドキット・常備薬・保険証など
※アイゼンは頂上までの登山では基本的に必要ありません。
