Gear for climbing Mt. Fuji

Q&A about gear and equipment

How much money should I bring?
About 5,000 yen is enough on the mountain. Prepare a lot of coins instead of bills.
Toilets at Mt. Fuji requires money payment. Since you need a 100 yen coin to use one, plenty of these coins should be brought. In addition, Food and drink at the stations are rather expensive due to shipping charges. Extra cash should be prepared.

(Sample expenses)
  • Pay toilets: 1,200-1,500 yen(200-300 yen/1 time)
  • Bottled water: 500-1,000 yen(400-500 yen/1 bottle)
*other expenses such as souvenirs, offerings and brands for walking sticks are not included.
Do I need to take anti-sunburn precautions?
UV rays are so strong on the mine that taking measure to avoid sunburns is necessary.
Sunscreen and sunglasses are must items. Sunscreen will run off from sweat even after put on once. Put it on again frequently. Sunglasses are not just for blocking out blinding light, but also absorb the UV rays to prevent the darkening of corneas since melanin pigments make skin get a tan after corneas absorb the UV rays . Sunglasses that fully cover the eyes are recommended.
How much water should I bring?
Bring a liter when start the climb. Refills are purchasable from the mountain huts. Two or three liters are required for one climb (two days with an overnight stay). Carrying all in a rucksack is a heavy burden therefore prepare the first liter and purchase one at the mountain huts on the way to the summit. Be careful for dehydration leads to altitude sickness.
Point
Do not bring any unnecessary things.
eg:
  • Extra clothes
  • Cosmetics
  • Tooth paste
  • Book
  • Too many beverages
