FUJI-SAN. Ascent to the most famous mountain in Japan (part 2)

Also keep in mind that the climb from station 5 to station 8 will go faster than from station 8 to the top when it becomes especially debilitating and difficult.

Not very interesting landscapes. The view from the top is impressive – the clouds accumulating in the mountains below seem like waves breaking on the rocks, but the climb itself will not please you with anything special. Mount Fuji is a volcano, so most of the way you will see a deserted black landscape.

Altitude sickness. This is a pretty nasty thing. Some tourists experience dizziness, headache, and nausea while climbing. To fight this, take breaks for a while and let your body adjust to the climb, or buy a small oxygen bottle.GUIDE TO FUJI WITH A GUIDE
If you are not sure that you are ready to independently overcome this difficult route, you can purchase an excursion with an ascent to Fuji. They are different – from one-day, with a visit to the 5th station and surrounding attractions, to tours for 1-3 days with overnight stays, admiring the dawn and visiting hot springs.

You can choose a suitable tour to Fuji on the website of our company TabiTabi.ru in the section Fuji and Hakone.
How to get there?

For those who decided to conquer the summit of Fuji-san on their own, we offer a brief overview of transport options.

By train

It is recommended to get to Mount Fuji by train only for those who have a JR Pass, because with the suspension of the JR Fuji Pass, a train ride was not a cheap pleasure.

From Shinjuku to Otsuk, the Chuo line is free for JR Pass owners, for the remaining 1,320 yen, then by the Fujiku rail to Kawaguchiko station – 1,140 yen, and from there to the 5th Fuji station – 1,540 yen, the return 2,100 yen .

The trip takes 2-3 hours one way. The total ticket price is 4,200 yen.

By bus

We recommend this type of transport to most tourists. Traveling by bus is the most painless way, since you can take it directly to Fuji-san. You can book bus tickets from Tokyo to Fuji here, and also book your return flight online. Please note that buses to station 5, from which the Yoshida trail starts, operate only during the climbing season. If you are unlucky with this site, you can also order tickets here.

The journey takes about 2-2.5 hours, a one-way ticket costs 2,700 yen.
