Mountain Hut reservations are only accepted for Fujisan Hotel (3,400m), Taishikan (3,100m) and Kamaiwakan (2,790m) mountain huts
Mountain hut reservations for the 2017 climbing season have ended. Reservations for the 2018 climbing season will begin on April 1, 2018.
In cooperation with the Fujiyoshida City Hall, FMG accepts mountain hut booking requests for those who want to climb Fuji on their own but are unable to secure a mountain hut reservation due to factors including the language barrier.
For the price of ¥1000 per person, you can request a mountain hut booking for the Fujisan Hotel (Yoshida/Subashiri trail 3,400m), Taishikan (Yoshida trail 3,100m) and Kamaiwakan (Yoshida Trail 2,790m) mountain huts. After receiving your hut booking request, we will make a reservation on your behalf. If the reservation is unsuccessful, your booking fee of ¥1000 per person will be refunded.
Alternatively, if you are interested in a guided ascent, feel free to take a look at our Mt. Fuji Tour's.
Please note of the following terms and conditions:
FMG does not endorse, represent, nor is affiliated with either Fujisan Hotel or Taishikan mountain huts and are not responsible for how they treat you or any issues that may arise between your party and them. FMG will not mediate or take any responsibility for any conflict which may result from either party's actions. We highly recommend you familiarize yourself with the mountain hut etiquette here.
This is a reservation request only and does not guarantee that your booking will be successful. We will email you to let you know if your booking was accepted within three days of your request.
This is NOT payment for accommodation at the mountain hut. The fee of ¥1000 per person is a reservation request only, you will need to pay for the use of the mountain hut in cash once you get there (usually between ¥6,000 - ¥10,000 per person per night depending on meal plan).
All mountain huts on Mt. Fuji offer very, very basic accommodation. "Dorm style accommodation" is a generous term for the huts on Fuji; expect very little space, no privacy and during busy times you'll be sleeping shoulder-to-shoulder with strangers. And no, no hut will give you extra space even if you offer to pay more.
Mountain hut reservations are only available during the in-season on Mt. Fuji. This is from June 29 to September 7, 2017
Reservations at Fujisan Hotel can not be made for more than 9 people per party.
FMG takes no responsibility in ensuring you get to your mountain hut. You are climbing this mountain on your own--you'll need to do research and find your own way there. The Fujiyoshida City Hall has a great website on mountain huts and trail information which you can find here.
FMG is doing this as a service to climbers on Mt. Fuji; no custom requests or reservations for mountain huts other than Fujisan Hotel (Yoshida/Subashiri trail 3,400m), Taishikan (Yoshida trail 3,100m) or Kamaiwakan (Yoshida Trail 2,790m) will be accepted.
Reservation requests must be submitted to FMG three days in advance for the Fujisan Hotel or 7 days in advance for Taishikan and Kamaiwakan. No reservation requests will be made for Fujisan Hotel less than three days in advance and no reservations for Taishikan or Kamaiwakan will be made less than 7 days in advance.
FMG takes no responsibility for your reservation after it is made.
Making a reservation and not showing up is a serious offense to the mountain hut and a faux pas in Japanese culture. Only proceed with your reservation if you are confident that you will be showing up on the date of the reservation. If you make a reservation and know you are not going to be showing up, you need to cancel prior to your your arrival. Further instructions are provided during the reservations process.
