    Fuji summit

    by stmlnyc Written Oct 13, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The near freezing temperature, gusts of ice specks, and powerful wind make the summit resemble a nuclear winter...it is like another planet. The view from the summit and of the crater is striking and worth enduring the elements.

    Summit hut rest stop

    by stmlnyc Written Oct 13, 2003

    The large hut at the summit of Mt. Fuji serve as a resting place before the hike down. It is relatively warm and you can take a nap, get super-hot drinks, snacks/noodles, and souvenirs.

    Trek down

    by stmlnyc Written Oct 13, 2003

    The trek down Fuji-san is easier...once you're at cloud level, its almost over.

    Be sure to relax and enjoy the scenery on a bed of clouds.
