Excellent Service
Our guide Takashi-san has excellent command of English and share with us a lot of information on Mount Fuji, wind/ice cave. He led us to each location and explain clearly. Our driver(Toshi-san) is extremely professional, patiently waiting in the car for us at each site. As we did not manage to catch sunset over Mount Fuji due to bad weather, he volunteer to send us some pictures which he has taken a week earlier. Overall my family enjoyed the trip and the professionalism of both the guide and driver.

Private Mt Fuji and the Gotemba Outlet in One Day from Tokyo
Good tour , they contact me the day before to ask me what we wanted to do . They pick up us in the hotel and take us where we wanted. As we were a group of 8 the guide accompanied my father to si some shopping in the mall and help him with the translation. He was very kind. Due to the they take us to a snow resort which wasn’t in the itinerary , that was great ! Excellent tour

Mt Fuji Day Tour with English Speaking Guide
My wife and I toured Japan for 20 days using 9 guides. Zia was by far the best guide we had during our trip. He was prompt, made feel comfortable throughout the trip including tourist sites and lunch. His driving habits, knowledge and english are excellent. We had a great day and came away as friends. I would recommend to all.

Private Tour: Chartered Car to Mt. Fuji Lake Kawaguchiko or Hakone and Lake Ashi
We spent a great day with Takashi (guide) and Toshi (driver) in the 5 lakes region. They planned the whole day according to our preferences. We got spectacular views of Mt. Fuji from the different sites. Traffic was very bad coming back due to culture day weekend, but they kept their positive attitude throughout.

Private Tour: Chartered Car to Mt. Fuji Lake Kawaguchiko or Hakone and Lake Ashi
our guide Teddy (Tetsuya Ishida) was wonderful and so was the driver. They picked us up at our hotel in a comfortable minivan. They took us as close to Mt. Fuji as possible and the weather was gorgeous so we were able to see Mt. Fuij and take great pictures. The place he took us for lunch (special Hoto Noodle Soup) was in a high elevation with great views of mt. Fuji, and the noodle soup was delicious. We would highly recommend him and his driver.

How to Get There

5th Station is accessible via the Subaru Line toll road; buses leave from Mt. Fuji (Fujisan) or Kawaguchiko Station.

When to Get There

Weather permitting, it’s possible to visit Mt. Fuji 5th Station year-round. During summer, when the hiking trail is open (July to mid-September), the station can get extremely busy, and the access road is closed to private vehicles—shuttle buses run between car parks at the bottom of the mountain. In winter, heavy snow can sometimes hinder access.

Climbing Mt. Fuji

Scaling the 12,389-feet (3,776-meter) summit of Japan’s highest mountain is a popular challenge for adventurous travelers. Yoshida Trail is the busiest route to the top, with more than 170,000 climbers annually. It’s only open for two months each summer, and the ascent takes between five and six hours, with the descent taking three to four. Many hikers start out in the middle of the night in order to reach the summit in time for sunrise.
