The Climb from Kawaguchi-ko 5th Station
The summit (3776 meters) of Mount Fuji is very accessible and the hike to the top is enjoyed by tens-of-thousands of people each year. But don't let the crowds deterr you - they can be avoided - and don't let the person in front of you lead you astray. It is common for altitude weary hikers to walk down the wrong trail from the summit, because they followed the party infront of them. There are several routes down which split off to different mountain base locations. Watch for trail signs and use this GPS map.
