Can I purchase a Mt. Fuji climbing stick outside of Japan?
Is there any place other than Japan (online?) to purchase a Fuji stick? With or without stamps. I am trying to find a replacement Fuji Stick for my brother.
Reply: That's an interesting question, but I'm afraid I can't help you. To my knowledge, although they sometimes show up on eBay, the only place to purchase Mt. Fuji climbing sticks, commonly referred to in Japanese as a kongozue (金剛杖, pilgrim's staff), is on Mt. Fuji itself.
This page has many pics of the different kinds of stamps you can get on your Mt. Fuji climbing stick: http://www.clubgets.com/fujitozan/stamp.html
But if any future visitors to this page have any info to assist with this inquiry, I hope you'll be kind enough to add it in the commenting section below, thanks...
