Mount Fuji

0 0 reviews

Few places in Japan are more iconic than Mt Fuji, the country’s tallest peak. Towering over the landscape at a height of 3,776 meters (12,388 feet), Mt Fuji looms large not only in real life but also in the psyche of the Japanese population. The mountain appears in everything from ancient poetry and ukiyo-e woodblock prints to modern day travel posters and TV series.

Highlights

Yoshida Trail

The Yoshida Trail is the most popular route, and is the only trail that originates in Yamanashi Prefecture at an elevation of around 2300 meters. The trail’s starting point is known as the Fuji Subaru Line 5th station. Higher up the mountain, the Yoshida Trail offers the largest concentration of huts between the 7th and 8th stations.

Subashiri Trail

The Subashiri Trail begins on the eastern side of Mt Fuji in Shizuoka Prefecture, and its 5th station sits at a slightly lower elevation of 2000 meters. The Subashiri trail actually joins up with the Yoshida trail around the 8th station.

Gotemba Trail

The Gotemba Trail begins on the southeastern side of the mountain, in Shizuoka Prefecture. With the 5th station here sitting only at 1400 meters above sea level, a hike to the summit from this starting point takes the longest of all the routes.

Fujinomiya Trail

The Fujinomiya Trail is the southernmost of the four trails and the most accessible starting point for travelers coming from western Japan. With a starting elevation of 2400 meters above sea level, this is the shortest of the trails to the summit but the only one that offers zero visibility of a morning sunrise, until the final arrival at the mountain’s peak. About a half dozen huts are located along the route.
