The Mt. Fuji Climbing Tour’s Main Features

Even a beginner can see the rising sun from the summit
Mt. Fuji

Even a beginner can see the rising sun from the summit.

Willer Travel tours have prepared a mountain hut at the main eighth station.
Unlike other mountain huts at the seventh and eighth stations, it is situated closer to the mountaintop, therefore climbers are accustomed to the elevation during the day, which reduces the risk of altitude sickness and minimizes the perils of the dangerous climb at night.
In addition, due to its ideal location at the split between the road going up and the road going down the mountain, climbers can leave their belongings at the hut and head to the top without being encumbered. This makes even beginners see the rising sun easily at the summit on this tour.Mt. Fuji
English-speaking tour

An English-speaking tour conductor, as well as a mountain guide, will accompany you

With an English-speaking tour conductor and a certified professional mountain guide, the tour will proceed at a slow pace and take moderate breaks. The goal is to get to the top without overdoing it therefore even people who are not confident about their stamina can climb safely.
