Bring your lunch, drinks and snacks for yourself for the hike. It's an easy hike(tennis shoes are okay) The early view of Mt Fuji is the best so bring a camera! This event is free, just bring money for any souvenirs you may want to buy for yourself and for your train fare.
In case of rain the event will be cancelled. I'll post further updates.
