Does Mt. Fuji and its transport there close on national holidays?

by Benjamin
(U.K.)

A friend and I was wondering if we would be able to walk up Mt. Fuji on the 20th July which happens to be a national holiday. And if transport links there will still be open?

No, they don't close.

No worries, Benjamin. Mt. Fuji & its transport network will be "busyness" as usual.

The key word there is "busy."

The 3rd Mon. in July is Marine Day (海の日, Umi no Hi), and as you stated, this year the national holiday falls on Mon. July 20, 2015.

Because Marine Day creates a 3-day weekend, all outdoor activities in Japan are quite crowded (especially at the sea), and Mt. Fuji is no exception.

As you can see from these Mt. Fuji climbing statistics from last year, the Marine Day weekend is one of the busiest climbing times of the whole season. If I were you and your schedule permits, I'd try to choose another date. :-)

Have a great trip...
