Can I climb Mount Fuji without a guide?

by Thevarani Pushparasah
(Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia)

Basically I would like to know if I can climb Mount Fuji without a guide, i.e. all the way from Tokyo to the 5th Station and then book the hut at the 8th station. I do not speak Japanese.

Thank you.

No problem

Yes, Thevarani, hundreds of thousands of people every year climb Mt. Fuji without a guide.

You should book the hut in advance though, otherwise there may not be any space if you wait till you arrive.

Some hut websites have online reservations (in Japanese). Otherwise, you'll need to just call (or skype) the huts (or their office numbers) directly. Here's a list of huts & phone numbers on the main Yoshida Trail: Mt. Fuji Mountain Huts

Best wishes...
