Mt Fuji climbing
Get to the highest land in Japan, on top of the iconinc mountain.
You have the opportunity to climb the 3776 meters (12,388 feet) of Japan's most iconic symbol, the sacred Fuji-san.
The classic time to ascend the mountain is at night, climbing through the darkness to reach the summit as the sun gradually appears over the horizon, lighting up the World in the most dramatic and beautiful way, revealing the mountains and lakes below and warming the weary limbs of the pilgrims who have struggled to the top. It is said a fool never climbs Mt. Fuji but you are more of a fool to climb it twice.
And this is no easy stroll.
