Akaiwa Hachigo mountain hut is located at 3,300 meters at the 8th Station. This mountain hut is located approximately 2 hours from the summit of Mt. Fuji and marks the final crux on the trail to Japan's highest point.
Huts on Mt. Fuji were originally built as shelter from harsh mountain conditions and offer simple dorm style accommodation. Accommodations consist of a bunk, bedding, sleeping bag and pillow all in the Japanese style. During peak season, expect minimum space and privacy, as it is common to be sleeping shoulder-to-shoulder with other guests. Eye masks, as well as ear plugs come highly recommended and are provided by FMG. These huts offer a fantastic cultural experience unique to Mt. Fuji and are a great way of meeting fellow climbers, exchanging stories, and experiencing camaraderie that you will never find in a five star hotel.
