In our most popular summer offering, the 2-Day Mt. Fuji Tour, will give ample time in your pursuit to reach the summit of Mt. Fuji. After a long hike the first day, participants enjoy a hot dinner and rest over night in a mountain hut at 3400 meters. Awaking before dawn, participants will continue the climb up Mt. Fuji in order to reach the summit in time for the sunrise.
The 2-day Mt. Fuji tour is led by English speaking guides, dedicated to assisting our guests in navigating Mt. Fuji, from Tokyo to the summit and back again to Tokyo. This tour follows the Subashiri trail for a less crowded and more local experience.
Meet at Tochomae Station in Tokyo or Gotemba Station near Mt.Fuji depending on your preference. The tour will leave promptly at the published departure time of 6:45 a.m. from Tochomae Station and 9:30 a.m. from Gotemba Station.
The group will depart Tokyo by private vehicle, making our way to the Subashiri 5th station, via Gotenba station. Beginning our climb at 2,000 meters, we will follow the Subashiri trail up to 3,400 meters, where we will rest and lodge for the night. A hot dinner of Japanese curry rice is provided by our mountain hut.
Awake before dawn, as we continue our climb up in the dark, lighting the path with head lamps. After an 1 1/2 hour climb to the summit, we will watch the sunrise from Japan's highest peak.
Time is allotted for buying souvenirs, taking pictures and weather permitting, an optional climb around the crater. After celebrating our summit and eating a hot breakfast, the group will descend back to the Subashiri 5th station and return to Tokyo via Gotenba station.

Food and Snacks
The 2-day Mt. Fuji tour includes one dinner on Day 1 (hot Japanese curry rice) and one breakfast on Day 2 (various noodle/rice bowl options) served through a mountain hut. Mountain huts only serve Japanese food such as curry rice, noodles, udon, miso soup, etc. If you are not able to eat Japanese food we ask that you buy food previous to the hike and bring it up with you. A vegetarian option is available for dinner on Day 1.
You will need to provide 2 lunches on your own. Lunch on day 1 will be part way through our climb and can be purchased and eaten at one of the mountain huts located along the trail. Lunch on day 2 will be eaten at a mountain hut following the descent, where many rice bowl, noodle, vegetarian and meat lover options are available. You will need to pack snacks for each day of your climb.
Fujisan Hotel is located at 3,400 meters at the Original 8th Station. This mountain hut is located just over an hour 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.
From summer 2021 guests are now each afforded 1 tatami mat worth of space. This means it is no longer shoulder to shoulder sleeping conditions, however, there will still be multiple climbing parties sleeping in the same room. 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.
The summit of Mt. Fuji is located at 3,776m / 12,389ft. If you are not used to elevation, you may experience nausea, headaches, and shortness of breath. However, with proper physical fitness, this can be mitigated. Download our guide to help you physically and mentally prepare for your climb up Mt. Fuji.
Proper gear will keep you warm, dry, and safe. See our required gear list here.
