Any transport between the Mt. Fuji summit and the 6th station?

by David
(Australia)

Hi Gary, is there any transport available between the Mt. Fuji summit and the 6th station?

I really want to do the climb, but am concerned about my knee not standing up to it, particularly the downhill trek back?

Don't think so...

Not that I am aware of, David.

In the Edo Era, horses were used to carry the luggage of people climbing Mount Fuji and also to transport construction materials and supplies up to the mountain huts, before the advent of bulldozers.

But to my knowledge, nowadays I think horses are only available up to the 6th station, although I've seen some websites that show horses as high up as the 7th station.

In this Flickr album, you can see some pics of the horses and the price list that I took at the 5th station last August: https://flic.kr/s/aHskibKsxu

For more detailed information, you could contact the Fujiyoshida City Horse Riding Association that operates these horses from the 5th station: tel. +81-90-3240-6866 (8am-7pm)
