Frequently Asked Questions

This is a compilation of frequently asked questions about the Mt. Fuji Climbing Tour. Please check if your question has been addressed.

question Climbing gear is quite expensive. Would it be OK to substitute it for cheaper rainwear and/or shoes?

During the Mt. Fuji climbing tour, the temperatures ranges from the hotness of midsummer to the coldness of midwinter; and you will experience unstable weather conditions such as sudden rain and strong winds, even if the weather appears clear at the beginning. To prepare items that have been especially made for mountain climbing, made of materials such as Gore-Tex is recommendable due to their functionality and durability. There are suitable items at general stores, however, if it is difficult to decide what to buy, a specialized shop may offer ones. Also, a professional gear rental plan is available at Willer Travel’s Mt. Fuji Climbing Tour (An advanced booking has to be made.)

question Will the same bus be used for both ways? Can we leave our luggage in the bus?

The vehicle or bus company may not be the same for both trips. Any luggage cannot be left inside the bus. Please use the coin lockers at Fujikyu Unjokaku for any unnecessary luggage.

question Can one person only sign up for the trip, or does it have to be a group?

You are more than welcome to join the tour by yourself, there are many participants doing so.
