Climbing Mt. Fuji, or Fujisan (富士山) in Japanese, is no easy task; huge increases in elevation, long hiking distances, inclement and ever-changing mt. Fuji weather, as well as less-than-desirable steep and slippery portions of the path make climbing to the summit of Mt. Fuji very difficult.
However, with the correct gear and knowledge of the mountain go a long way to ensuring a safe and enjoyable hike to the top of Japan’s most iconic landmark.
