Fuji-san or Mount Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan at 12,389 feet (3,776 metres). It is an isolated volcano, located only 50 miles southwest from Tokyo, which contributes to its popularity. Thousands of climbers, tourists, and religious pilgrims ascend to the summit of Mount Fuji each year. The mountain has traditionally been sacred to the Shinto religion, and has remained sacred to Buddhists as Buddhism has become Japan's predominant religion. Three temples (plus a weather observatory) have been erected on the summit. No record exists of the first ascent of Fuji-san, but oral tradition states that a Buddhist monk first climbed the mountain in the seventh century. The mountain is now dormant, but it has erupted eighteen times in recorded history, and many more times according to geological evidence. The last eruption of Mount Fuji occurred in 1708. Perhaps, ironically for a sacred mountain, the foothills have been developed as a summer and winter sports area, and skiing on the mountain is popular in the winter. The majority of people who climb the mountain, however, do so with respect for its sanctity, and quiet meditation is common on its summit. The official climbing season for Fuji-san or Mount Fuji is July and August, but many climb in surrounding months to avoid the crowds.

Visitor Reviews of Mount Fuji


Mark Edmundson from United States writes:

I did a solo night hike last weekend. I climbed starting around sunset on October 5th, 2013. The forecast on this site had showed the minimum temperature at the peak to be 7C overnight and clear skies. When I reached the peak about an hour before midnight the fog was so thick that visibility was less than 5 feet. It was difficult just to find the buildings. Then the temperature began to drop and the wind picked up. In the morning when I woke up my water bottles had frozen inside my pack that I was sitting against. It would take temperatures around -5C to do this, much colder than 7C. So please be careful and prepared that the summit of the mountain can be much colder, wetter, and windier than this websites suggests.

But with that said the sunrise was beautiful and well worth the danger and discomfort of spending the night at the top. I would go again in much worse conditions.
