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.)
