Hi Mitch, yeah my friend recommended to have firm ankle height mountain shoes, I have to get one pair as well.
Also there is another reason why end July is better.
Typhoon season is starting, and end July is less opportunities for that.

I also found rental items are available in many shops. So once the dates are determined, better to book some of the items if you are not really into hike and do not want to purchase all the suggested items.
I will probably buy one boots but might rent some of the items from rental shop.
Dunno if you can read Japanese, but following is an example for rental shop:

My another experienced friend suggest if this is the only time in your life for climbing up to the top of Fujisan, my friend's recommendation is staying at the lodge for overnight. If the purpose is going to the top, starting from early in the morning for daytrip is also good, in this case, less equipment compare to overnight, which is also good. Regarding the course, if starting from Kawaguchi-ko lake side,and if the weather is good, we can see blessing early-morning light.cool
