Highlights

Mt. Fuji is Japan's highest mountain at an altitude of 3,776m stretching across Shizuoka and Yamanashi prefectures. Every year, there are many climbers that climb Mt. Fuji in the summer to see the sunrise. Why not join this exclusive group? 1. An English or Chinese speaking tour conductor plus an English-speaking Mt. Fuji specialist guide will accompany the trip. Full support from the ascent to the descent, so please be rest assured if you cannot speak Japanese. 2. The climb will not be strenuous with plenty of rests taken. The goal is to reach the top without too much exertion on the body. 3. View the sunrise from the top of Mt. Fuji. This is a special achievement as you have climbed to the top all by yourself! 4.
