Are there places to turn around if we can't make it to the summit?
We have a nine year old daughter who probably will not make it to the summit and we don't want to push her. It looks like the route up and down are different. If we wanted to turn around somewhere in between, is that possible?
If you're talking about the main Kawaguchiko Yoshida trail which most people from Tokyo & overseas use, I've been told the down trail is closed this year due to damage from Typhoon 4 in June, so people coming down must share the same trail w/ those going up.
If you're using one of the other 3 trails, I really don't think anyone would mind you're going down an up trail.
Best wishes on your hike !!
