SpotMore information for climbing Mt.Fuji

Although climbing Mt. Fuji in summer is a popular leisure activity among the Japanese it is not a climb that should be regarded as a stroll in the park. The average temperature around the summit is 5 degrees centigrade even in summertime, and can dip below zero. Preparation including winter clothing is a must and rain gear, a fleece or other thermal clothes, thick socks, a hat, sunglasses, sun block, a headlight (for night ascent), drinking water (at least 2 liters) and food are indispensable. Walking sticks are useful in the descent and can be purchased at souvenir shops around Gogo-me. Many like to have their sticks branded at rest houses on the way to the summit and they do serve as an interesting memento of your climb. Gloves, a change of clothing, garbage bags, toilet paper and trekking shoes are also highly recommended and Mt. Fuji should not be attempted in a skirt and high heels.

* if 2 liters is a little too heavy to comfortably carry please note it is possible to purchase drinks along the route but at higher prices than normal.
