    Favorite thing: There is an information office in Mount Fuji Fujinomiya Trail Fifth Station. The office has pamphlet on Fujinomiya Trail in English, Korean, Chinese and Japanese. The office was set up so that climbers to Mount Fuji can have enough guidance for safe climb. The staff are made up of expert park rangers and Fujinomiya volunteer tour guides.

    What to wear and bring to climb Mt fuji

    by cheesecake17 Updated Jan 2, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing:
    Clothes
    The temperature difference between the plains below and the peak is approx. 20 degrees.

    You experience mid summer (the world down there) and mid winter (at the peak). You need trousers, long sleeved shirts and sweaters.

    You should wear a hat to avoid direct sunlight. It is also better to wear gloves (cotton work gloves) to prevent injuries and protect you from the cold.

    Shoes
    Sports-type shoes you normally wear are fine, and if possible ones with ankle support such as climbing shoes or basket ball shoes are preferable.

    Please wear rather thick socks.

    Rainwear
    Weather in the mountains can change suddenly.

    Please pack rain coats, rain trousers and so on that will not get in the way of your climbing.

    Torch
    A torch is essential if you are going to climb at night. Please check the bat

    food
    Eventhough there are a few snack places, bring something that will keep your energy up...like trail nuts, water.

    ***oito Falls near Mt. Fuji

    by RoseAmano Updated May 4, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Shiroito Falls, near Mt. Fuji

    Favorite thing: From Tomei Highway, get off at Fuji IC, go up Rt. 139 (Fuji Toll Highway) for about 10 km, pass the exit for "Fuji 5 gome" which means the 5th Station of Mt. Fuji (the launch point for climbing), for a further 5 km or so. Exit Kamiide IC and there'll be a sign leading you to ***oito Falls nearby.

    Unfortunately, there is no convenient public transport to here, but from Shinkansen Station "Shin Fuji" and/or other local train linking from here, there are a number of buses. As this is a rural area with fewer buses/trains running per hour, you should carefully check the return timetables of any undertaking by public transports.

    There are a number of other activities in the area that tourists can enjoy, such as local restaurants, pubs, inns and hot spas.
