The official 2015 Mt. Fuji climbing season is now coming to an end. Last week we completed our last Fujinomiya Route Climb of the season. All in our climb group
were able to reach the summit and witness a beautiful sunrise as well we were able to return via the less populated Gotemba Route and hike thru the Hoei Crater.
Please contact us if you are interested in an off-season climb.
Recently, we had a client record and upload his Mt. Fuji Climb on YouTube. If you really want to know what a Fuji climb is like, this video by Dillon Hinchliffe will give you a taste: (Video of our Aug 18th/19th 2015 Mt. Fuji Climb Tour)

This was truly the best experience of my entire life. There is no feeling like it. The challenge, the personal triumph, (although not really a HARD mountain per se), the most gorgeous scenery I will EVER see, and meeting new people. OH! I couldn’t show you (obviously) but I also got to go to a really NICE ONSEN
After Typhoon # 11 Nangka brought over 2 feet of rain to parts of Japan, the weather has been super clear and the temperature has been extremely humid and hot. On Mt. Fuji the temperatures are much cooler and the sunrise for the most part over the last 2 weeks have been simply awesome..

When you come to Japan, one of the places you must visit is Kyoto:
How about spending your time with Maiko?
We recommend this Tour: River Terrace Dinner with Maiko.
You can watch Maiko performance and Japanese traditional games, with Japanese-Style Dinner on the River Terrace, called “Kawadoko” or just “Yuka” (means Floor) in Japanese.
As the Summer in Kyoto is so hot, they built Terraces on the Kamogawa River: it is much cooler and comfortable there.
This River Terraces are available only in Summer: May to September.
If you are interested in this arrangement please contact us.
Our 10th Mt. Fuji Climb of the season and the weather was unbelievably clear. In the evening and the morning you could clearly see the huge shadow of Mt. Fuji from the mountain itself, (Fuji Kage). Also during the night climb to the summit you could see the night lights as far away as Chiba and Tokyo.

Sumo Stable Tour is very popular in these days.
Sumo is a 1,500 year old Japanese cultural tradition.

– Aug 20th-30th

Countless amateur mountaineers climb Mount Fuji every year. Just because the summit is visible from the foothills, however, does not mean that getting there is easy. Climbers should be fully prepared both physically and mentally. And If you’re considering trekking Mount Fuji on your own, there is no better resource available than the “Complete Mt. Fuji Climbing Guidebook“!
