Fuji, the guides will determine whether to halt the tour with first consideration to safety. Also, the above times, climbing time, route and arrival times may vary greatly depending on weather and crowding conditions.
    • An English-speaking interpreter-guide will accompany you throughout the entire tour and a Japanese-speaking mountain climbing guide will also accompany you from the 5th Station, to the peak and back.
    • This is a shared tour with Japanese tourists. An English-speaking guide will accompany international visitors.
    • Since a participant name list is required for safety purposes, all participants will be asked to provide their names and emergency contact details on the first day of the tour.
    • Participants choosing to use a mountain hut accommodation other than Toyokan, Hinodekan or Fujiichikan due to their own circumstances are responsible for the expenses required.
    • The mountain hut accommodation consists of a mixed men's and women's room with bunk beds and less than 1 mat of space per person (about 1 meter by 2 meters). There are no bathing facilities at the mountain hut and non-flushing Japanese-style toilets are available outside.
