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

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.

From my initial inquiry, I knew that working with Yuji would be a great experience. He was quick and thoughtful in his responses and helped me consider and decide upon a 2 day visit to the Lake Kawaguchiko and Hakone areas. Upon meeting at our hotel, Yuji jumped right in and helped me find my laptop left on a bus and had it sent to my next stop. Whew ! Our itinerary was well thought out and Yuji p...

We booked a two day tour with Yuji of the Mt Fuji area, starting in Kawaguchigo and ending in Hakone to catch the Romance train back to Tokyo. We had asked Yuji to keep the planning fairly flexible as the activities we might want to do (being a photography enthusiast) would vary according to the weather, whether Mt Fuji was visible, the forecast for the next day adn whether the cherry blossoms we...

Very Good
3 months 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...
