the best view of mt fuji..."
Everything is understandably quite expensive on the mountain; no running water to refill canteens or bottles; it's very cold at the top during the early morning
In a nutshell
There is nothing more Japanese than Fuji-san.
Buy the RainCoat or Ponchos from the 100 Yen store. Trust me u this will be a life saver against the rain as well as the wind. better buy the TWO-PIECE version, it comes as a seperate pant and seperate jacket. They are made of simple plastic. They come in transparent or wierd blue, pink colors. Pick ur choice.
Tip: If u're anywhere near Nakano, then there's a 100Yen shop just outside the Nakano Broadway. The RainCoat is just behind the counter person, next to the umbrellas on the ground floor of the Nakano 100 Yen store.
Also available at the 100Yen store. These can be hung from anywhere. On the bag, cap, jacket etc. They also last the entire trip. U may want to buy spare batteries just in case.
Food/Drinks: U can pick em up from ur favorite store. I bought all my stuff from the nearby 7-11 store.
What to buy: .
Walking Sticks: This is a quintessential reqmnt. U can buy them at any of the 5th stations on Mt. Fuji.
Food/Drink: If in case u did not take enuf water or food stuff.. the 5th station is the last chance for u. Above that either its not available or its price is as high as your elevation on the mountain.

As you climb Mt. Fuji you find that prices climb as well. At the top, you will be able to buy most things you might need, but you'll pay dearly for it. A small bottle of water runs around 500yen. You're best off thinking ahead and bringing everything you need. See my supply list in the general tip section.
My friends brought everything we needed to make cup of noodles on top of Fuji.

Luggage and bags: .

Logic: The 7 hr grilling hike will be twice tough the more luggage u have.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: .
Warm Clothing. Layered Clothing in fact.. so that when it gets hot u can shed off some.

No Alchohol: Trust Me. Keep this one off.

Karigane-zutsumi is a river bank formed like a fortress protecting Fuji residents from flooding. There is a jogging course around the park about 2.2 kilometers in one circuit. This jogging course is flat and with distant marks in every 100 meters. What is more you can enjoy the great view of Mount Fuji while jogging. During late March to early April this area is filled with cherry blossoms.
