I climbed Mt. Fuji from 1st station to the top and back to 1st station

by Yuji

Mt. Fuji is actually closed officially.  Officially open from July 1 - Sept. 10. 

However, there are people still climb. I was one of them. 

I checked and saw no snow on Mt. Fuji and I have decided to go up on Oct. 11. 

But not from 5th station as standard, but from 1st station. 

I needed 11 hours including resting time.

Very windy when I was walking around the top along the crater.

There were moments I thought I would be blown away....

Any time soon, Mt. Fuji will be snow covered.

“ A day trip to Mount Fuji. ”

Very Good
3 weeks ago Traveler: Yew -   Tour Guide: Yuji

Being a person who views flexibility as one of the top criteria during a holiday trip therefore engaging a private guide is the best option for me however it alway a hit or miss issue. As for my experience with Yuji San; it was definitely a hit! Not only did he took good care of my family needs, he even try to fulfil our expectations of this trip example having last minute change in itinerary...

We had a wonderful day with Yuji. We started by going to see Mount Fuji. (we were extremely lucky - since it disappeared 30 minutes after we got to see it) and then we navigated across Hakone . We ended up our day in the Open Air Museum which was perfect. Yuji is very knowledgeable and was very attentive to us and our teenagers daughters. We had a good mixed of history and Japanese culture inst...

“ Fuji Area Experience ”

1 month ago Traveler: Larissa -   Tour Guide: Yuji

Yuji was a wonderful guide from the beginning. He is great communicating through email and understanding what you would like to do and see. We had a wonderful time exploring the Fuji area with him. We even went to the sea of trees which I recommend and he took us to the most amazing lunch location for a local type of noodle dish. If you can book an excursion with Yuji I recommend you do.

“ fantastic guide ”

1 month ago Traveler: Sharon -   Tour Guide: Yuji

Yuji is a great tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about the geology of Mt Fuji and could explain how the local area formed. He worked with us around our schedule as we had our children with us. He took us to Churieta, Sea of Trees (aokigahara), saiko bat cave, wind cave, and showed us plenty of views of Fuji. He picked us up from the bus station and brought us back there, making sure we caught...

“ Mt Fuji Tour ”

1 month ago Traveler: Leah -   Tour Guide: Yuji

Yuji was wonderful form start to finish. He was quick to reply to our emails, provided us with great information and help regarding our tour. We was silly and got off the wrong bus station, caught a taxi to the correct station and was worried sick that Yuji wouldn't be there. He was a champ and was still waiting for us. He provided us exactly what we wanted in our tour, gave us plenty of time to e...
