• Climb Mt. Fuji!

    ロケーション設定が必要です

    A weekend trip to climb the mighty Mt. Fuji - the tallest and most iconic mountain in Japan! YOU MUST SIGN UP ON THE OFFICIAL TRIP PAGE LINKED BELOW TO JOIN: https://www.tokyosnowclub.com/trips/2019-08-17/climb-mt-fuji.html (日本語案内は以下のページでご覧できます): https://www.tokyosnowclub.com/jp/trips/2019-08-17/climb-mt-fuji.html The official climbing season for Mt Fuji lasts for only a few months, from July to early September. The trek to the summit is extremely popular and is completed annually by around 250,000 people! Reaching the summit of this incredible mountain leaves an unbeatable feeling of achievement and the spectacular views are well worth the hike. Our hike will be timed so that we will reach the summit before the sunrise, catching the first rays of sunlight from the highest point in Japan while the rest of the country sleeps! There are several different approaches to climb Mt. Fuji. We will be taking the Yoshida trail starting at the Kawaguchiko 5th station (2305m). It is an intermediate level climb to the summit, which depending on your pace, will take 5 to 8 hours. The trail is approximately 6km long with an elevation change of around 1500m. While it is considered an intermediate level course, the Kawaguchiko trail is a suitable trail for all ages and all levels of experience. There is no actual climbing required, just hiking, but there are some steep parts where you need to use your hands. We will be taking the hike nice and easy to allow us to aclimatize to the alititude and reserve our energy. We plan to reach the summit around 3:30am, where we can rest and get a good spot to view the sunrise. There are a few huts at the summit that serve some hot dishes and are open from around 3:30am. A good chance to enjoy breakfast on top of the world! There is also an optional hike all the way around the crater at the summit of Mt. Fuji that takes around 1hr to complete. The descent from the summit takes a slightly different trail for some of the way and is quicker than the climb up, taking around 3 to 4 hours. You will never look at Mt. Fuji the same way again after having climbed to the top. This is definitely a must do for anyone living in or visiting Japan. Hope you can join us!

There are some great snorkelling spots only a short walk from the camp ground. The dolphin swim tour operations are strictly limited in regards to the number of people who can visit the dolphins each day to ensure the area is kept clean and the dolphins kept happy. As such we can only fit an absolute max of 20 people on this trip so please sign up as soon as you can if you are interested.
