Travel Guide - Mount Fuji

InformationInformation

Mount Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan at 3,776 meters. It is the most iconic mountain in the country, with elegant ridge lines. It has been revered by Japanese people since ancient times and also depicted in a number of Ukiyo-e (Japanese wood block prints) works by world-famous artists including Katsushika Hokusai and Utagawa Hiroshige. Mount Fuji was added to the World Heritage List as a Cultural Site in 2013.
Climbing season of Mount Fuji is from July 1 to August 26, and over 300,000 people climb the mountain every year. There are four major routes (Yoshida route, Subashiri route, Gotenba route, and Fujinomiya / Prince route) and usually climbers start from the 5th Station (Go-gome) on the side of Yamanashi Prefecture. The paths are well maintained and accesible even for beginners. However, the average temperature near the summit is about 5 degrees Celsius even in mid-summer and there are no trees around the trails providing protection from wind and rain. You will need to do some research, and get equipped and prepared for mountaineering.
