Are the stamps on the walking sticks different for each Mt. Fuji trail?

by Austin Klotz
(Buda, Texas, USA)

My parents climbed Mt. Fuji for their honeymoon in 1957. Our dad can’t remember which path they took and we were curious if we could tell based on the stamps on their sticks. Any thoughts? Thanks.

Yes, they're unique to each mountain hut.

​Austin​,​ this page ​(https://www.clubgets.com/fujitozan/stamp/​) ​​has a lot of the stamps ​you can get ​on the ​main ​Yoshida trail, the most popular ​Mt. Fuji ​trail used by folks from Tokyo a​s well as foreign tourists, and which accounts for over 60% of all ​Mt. Fuji climbing traffic.

So there’s a good chance your parents ​climbed​ on the ​Yoshida Trail​,​ and you might be able to find ​their stamps on that page​. As you can see​,​ ​the ​stamps also ​usually ​include the name of the mountain h​ut, a list of which you can find on this page: https://www.garyjwolff.com/mt-fuji-mountain-huts.html.

You might also want to keep a​n​ ​eye out on this page​ (https://www.worthpoint.com/inventory/search?query=mt.+fuji+walking+stick​)​​​,​ which has some old vintage ​Mt. Fuji walking sticks from the 50s. You might want to click open some of those pic​s and check ​out ​tho​​se stamps as well.​

You might also trying searching eBay for "Mt. Fuji walking sticks," which in years past has had a few for sale there.​..

Best wishes,
Gary

​p.s. So how cool is it to be named Austin ​and ​live in Buda​,​ Texas?! ​:-) ​I still have ​very ​fond memories of my college days at UT Austin, canoeing down Onion Creek near McKinney Falls State Park​,​ catching ​HUGE bass. In those days​,​ we used ​​​a lur​e​ call​ed​ ​"​hellbender,​"​ and ​after the many blue moons​ that've passed since then​,​ I often reflect back wondering whether the hellbender still works there... :-)​
