Itinerary

Day 1: Tokyo - Mt Fuji Seventh Station (D)
Meet your guide at Keio Plaza Hotel in Shinjuku at 7:00 am and then walk to the parking lot to ride the bus to Mt. Fuji Lake Kawaguchi 5th Station (approx. 90 mins). After arrival you can get some rest and eat lunch (at your own expense) while preparing for the climb. Begin climbing on the Yoshida Trail from Lake Kawaguchi 5th Station at 2,304 meter and you will have approx. 45 mins rest time total during the climb.

Arrive at the Mountain Hut, also called "Toyokan" in Japanese, above Mt. Fuji 7th Station at 2,910 meter about 5:00 pm.

At 10:00 pm, start the second part of your climb. Be guided by the moonlight and the beam of your flashlight as you walk over steep rocky outcrops to reach the summit of Mt Fuji, where you’ll wait for the first rays of dawn to peek through the horizon. This section is approximately 5 hours long.

Day 2: Mt. Fuji - Tokyo (B)
Arrive on the top of Mt. Fuji and the mountain crater in the following morning around 3:00 am. Enjoy the stunning view of the sunrise from the summit at 3,776 meter while having the breakfast - inari zushi, the traditional Japanese rice ball wrapped in fried tofu. At 5:00 am start descending via Yoshida Trail towards Lake Kawaguchi and then head for the 5th Station (about 4 hours). After arriving at the 5th Station, you will be picked up by the bus and go to Yamanaka Onsen (hot spring).

Beni-Fuji-no-Yu of Lake Yamanaka Onsen is a natural alkaline hot spring. While relaxing in the hot spring outdoor, you can usually enjoy the view of Mt. Fuji as well.

Please note: The summit of Mt Fuji is 12,388 feet (3,776 meters) above sea level and altitude sickness may occur. The rest stop at the mountain hut is designed to acclimatize you to the altitude so you can avoid altitude sickness.

that was a great time! Thank for everyone who led us and gave us such a great opportunity.
I wish it was less smogy so we could see Fuji from the side, but walking above the clouds and below the stars was amazing. Never breathed an air as tasty as at the top of Fuji!

Viator contracted the local tour operator. They were incredible...caring folks that explained everything and had all logistics (transpo, trail, hut, food) taken care of. Hike was slow but ensured everyone that could hike did make it. Sunrise made it all worth it. Prepare to spend $5-$6 p/ bottle of water if you don't bring enough. Have gear necessary for 3 kinds of weather (cold, hot, wet)...we hit all three in our trip. Met great folks from around the world...0 complaints. Must do experience....this will thrust you into Japanese culture.

The tour was perfect, the English speaking guide really knew her stuff. It's very cold at the top, don't forget hats and gloves! The whole experience was fantastic and one which we will never forget. This trip was in the first week of our three week honeymoon, cannot recommend it highly enough!
