Mount Fuji (富士山, Fujisan, IPA: [ɸɯꜜdʑisaɴ] ( listen)), located on Honshu Island, is the highest mountain in Japan at 3,776.24 m (12,389 ft) and 7th-highest mountain on an island. It is an active stratovolcano that last erupted in 1707–1708. Mount Fuji lies about 100 kilometres (60 mi) south-west of Tokyo, and can be seen from there on a clear day. Mount Fuji's exceptionally symmetrical cone, which is snow-capped for about 5 months a year, is a well-known symbol of Japan and it is frequently depicted in art and photographs, as well as visited by sightseers and climbers. Mount Fuji is one of Japan's "Three Holy Mountains" (三霊山, Sanreizan) along with Mount Tate and Mount Haku. It is also a Special Place of Scenic Beauty and one of Japan's Historic Sites. It was added to the World Heritage List as a Cultural Site on June 22, 2013. According to UNESCO, Mount Fuji has "inspired artists and poets and been the object of pilgrimage for centuries". UNESCO recognizes 25 sites of cultural interest within the Mt. Fuji locality. These 25 locations include the mountain and the shrine, Fujisan Hongū Sengen Taisha, as well as the Taisekiji Head Temple founded in 1290, later immortalized by Japanese ukiyo-e artist Hokusai.

We took the hike in the late afternoon so that we could reach the top at night. It's a pretty easy hike with plenty of amenities most of the way up. Be aware though that some of the bathrooms on the path are pay toilets. We arrived at the top and spent the night waiting for sunrise. It can get pretty cold due to cloud cover so make sure you have something warm if you plan to stay until day break. Watching the sun come up and then seeing it reflected on the clouds in the volcano was breathtaking.

The best place in Japan with no doubt. I had the chance to climb it last summer. We started the hike at 9 pm at Subaru station.it takes probably 6 hours to reach the top but because we were a bit early, we stayed at one of the stations to wait so we could make it on perfect time to see the sunrise from the top. It was the best way to start a new day. The way down was hard, our legs were tired from walking the day before around Tokyo and hiking the whole night to the top. We didn't sleep for more than 25hours but it was totally worth it. If you go to Tokyo in summer, it's one of those things that you will remember for the rest of your life.

Awesome hike!! Such an accomplishment. Was able to make it to the summit for the sunrise which was amazing. Definite a must do but not easy by far. You'll need walking sticks. A soveiner Fuji stick will be helpful though. If you go at night, dress in layers and bring a headlamp. A flashlight will help but you'll need both hands for the hike

I opened my door each morning to Fuji. It is stunning, and the Japanese love it. I drove to the 8k mark and climbed to the last blowout site. That was nice. If you go, dress warmly, even in summer. It's cold up there! Friends surprised me and took me up, but I was in shorts and nearly froze to death. Everyone looked at me crazily. So you've been told. The Japanese go bonkers taking pictures from the bullet trains because they may have never seen it or rarely do, and it's such an icon in Japan. My lasting memory is seeing the snow-wrapped mountain reflecting blue moonlight at night. Gorgeous. But some days you'd never know it was looming near, being often shrouded in clouds.

I would visit holy Mount Fuji. I wish I could go through all of Japan. But for health reasons and because of some other things that keep me on the most massive it is unfortunately not possible to visit such a great place. I wish you all Love and the best in Japan.
