Climbing up Mt. Fuji, but not sleeping in a hut. Can I sleep on the ground outside?

by Gabriela

I'm going to climb Mt. Fuji in mid August and plan to climb during night so I can see the sun rise. But I don't want to pay for the huts, so I plan to sleep on just a sleeping bag outside along the trail. Am I allowed to do that? I know it gets very cold the higher up you get.

Don't think so...

Camping on Mt. Fuji, a national park, is expressly prohibited, and I seriously doubt the hut owners would allow sleeping in the vicinity of their huts. And the usually narrow trails are roped off from the surrounding terrain, therefore you have to stay ON the trails.

Even if you could somehow manage to sleep on the sharp volcanic rocks in an uncomfortable inclined position, you'd probably get trampled by the thousands of other nighttime hikers trying to get past you.

Maybe you need a Plan B...
