Tour point

  • 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 tours have prepared a mountain hut at the original 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.

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.

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’s Mt. Fuji Climbing Tour (An advanced booking has to be made.)
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.
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.
