富士宮ルートは山頂への4つの登山道の中で2番目に人気のあるコースです。富士宮口五合目から登山道がスタートするため、山頂への距離は短いですが、全体的に傾斜が急でやや岩場が多いルートです。

We started hiking in the evening and rested in one of the mountain huts so we could summit at sunrise. Definitely worth it to take advantage of the mountain huts, even more worth it to see one of the most epic sunrises you will ever experience. The way up was difficult, but the way down was brutal. We chose to go up the Fujinomiya trail and down the Subashiri trail. The way up was steep and required a fair bit of climbing while the way down was mostly sand and loose rock. Poles would have been a plus on this trail. With all of that said, I would do it again in a second!

it's a rough path with rocks and gravels, be in shape, and have your gears (trek shoes, poles, arm cover, hat, sunglass, jacket, water, snacks, headache tablet, oxygen can etc.). it's adventurous, fun, tiring, and satisfying.

I had done the Gotemba route at age 28. This route seems much more difficult (now 61). Definitely need 2 climbing poles to go up and down. I did it with wooden the Fuji stick at 28. Toilets are 200 yen at each station. 6000 yen to stay at the old 7th Station. 1000 yen for curry rice dinner. 1000 yen for breakfast of a box of green tea with two packages of japanese muffins. Bottles of water are 200 yen. We didn't make it to the summit, but did see a beautiful sunrise at 5am. two in our group got altitude sickness. We started with the bus from Shin-Fuji Shinkansen station. it took 2.5 hours to reach the 5th station trailhead. You need to reach the 8th station by 6pm to get dinner, and you should make reservations to get a bunkbed spot to sleep. They beds are 30 across rows of sleeping bags. Bring earplugs to block out snoring neighbors. Weather conditions change quickly. Bring rain gear and windbreaker or warm coat. Bring something to strap your hat from blowing away.

great trail takes about 24 hours from Hoboken NJ. The approach starts with an uber to ewr for about 30mins and then another hour and a half of waiting followed by 16hours of flying and then a car rental and 2hours of driving and then 4 hours round trip to the top and back! finish the day with a trip to the Fuji safari where some madman decided that he wanted to buy 20 lions and put them in a football field sized space and let people drive through it.

I recently hiked from Moanalua to Haiku, aka Stairway to Heaven on O’ahu. After completing this hike, my mother showed me an old looking Japanese flag. The kanji that is written on the flag translates: I was very joyful to complete my hike up Mt Fuji. I was 13 years old when I hiked up Mt Fuji with my relatives.

I'm wondering if this is the right trail....took me 8 hours--all night to climb. About 3 hours to get down....this was very difficult and many in our group didn't make it. But to say I climbed Mount Fuji------------PRICELESS!
