The Ridiculously Easy Guide to Climbing Mt Fuji | Mt Fuji Day Trip

Immortalised for centuries. Reaching sky high. It's the all time iconic symbol of Japan.

After being here for over a year, I finally climbed Mt Fuji. It took us over 12 hours, with sweltering heat at the base to almost freezing temperatures at the Mt Fuji summit, but we conquered the mountain... Let me tell you how you can also climb Mount Fuji in one day! We had a bright and early start at 5am where we hired 2 cars and made our way to the base (Mt Fuji by car is by far the easiest way to get there from Tokyo). Even from the base of Fuji, it already looks like you are standing on top of the clouds.
