Where can we store our backpacks while climbing Mt. Fuji?

Dear Gary Wolff,

Your site is amazing! Tons of great info. I do have a question that I am hoping you can help me with.

I am planning on climbing Fuji July 2 this year with one other person. ​​We will have backpacking packs with us as our luggage. Where can we store them while we our climbing?

We are coming from Osaka so I don't want to travel to Shinjuku Station to store them there since that will add considerable travel time. I have seen vague descriptions of coin lockers at the Subaru Yoshida fifth station or at Kawaguchiko. However, will these be big enough for backpacks?

Thanks for any help!

Joseph

About 15-20 large coin lockers
by: Gary Wolff

I doubt there are any exact counts, Joe. I guess sometimes we just have to take pot luck. :-)

But the Kawaguchiko tourist information center said there are about 15-20 large coin lockers.

Best wishes...

How many large-size lockers are at the Subaru Yoshida Fifth station and/or the Kawaguchiko station?
by: Joseph

Thanks, I did see that page. I am wondering how many large size lockers are at the Subaru Yoshida Fifth station and/or the Kawaguchiko station. I have scoured the internet but it doesn't seem there any reliable accounts of what the locker situation is like.

We are going July 2 so I am thinking it is early enough in the season lockers should be available at least at Kawaguchiko. I don't know if I want to chance it though.

Thanks for any input!

Yes, as long as the backpacks aren't TOO big. :-)

Thanks a lot, Joseph.

I believe this is the info you're looking for: Can I leave my large backpack in a locker at the train station and take only a smaller pack with me to climb?

I guess it goes without saying, but the availability of the larger size lockers on any given day & time is a crapshoot. I've heard some people also make arrangements at their hotels to keep their luggage while they climb Fuji-san.

Have a nice climb...

Cheers,
Gary
