Mt. Fuji mountain hut availability at night
by Patrick Spruit
First of all, thank you so much for all the information you provide over here. It really makes planning your trip so much easier.
I have a question on night climbing Fuji. My girlfriend and I are planning to climb Fuji at night, leaving the Fujinomiya 5th Station around 21:00-22:00 on Sept. 2nd. This is because booking a mountain hut in English seems a bit difficult and you probably won't get much sleep anyways.
What I was wondering is: Are the mountain hut/stores open at night for those who want to climb through the night? Can you get bottled water or take some rest somewhere inside and have a meal for example?
Or are you just on your own on the mountain?
Thanks in advance!
