What kind of food can we expect at Mt. Fuji mountain huts?
by Wilma Brosas
We already made our reservation for Tomoekan 8th station on the 5th of July taking the Yoshida trail.
Is it advisable to place our reservation without meals? The fee per meal is 1000 yen and we cannot gauge at this point whether we should get 1 or 2 meals or even just buy when we get there. Originally we planned a 1 meal dinner, but we want to get a better idea from those that have completed the climb if it's better to prepay food or just decide when you get there.
Also generally how much and what kind of food can we expect if we do decide to buy from mountain huts?
Can anyone also recommend any food essential worth carrying with us?
In parting, allow me to express delight and gratitude to you and to everyone who has helped in contributing to making this an informative site for those of us wanting to climb Mt. Fuji.
