Can I climb Mt. Fuji in April?

by Ray
(Nashville, Tennessee)

I will arrive in Tokyo, Japan in April. I plan to take the train to Mt. Fuji from Tokyo.

How long does it take to climb the mountain? When is the best time to climb?

Wait till July.
by: Gary Wolff

Wrong season, Ray. April is when Mt. Fuji usually experiences the highest snow coverage. The climbing season for Mt. Fuji is from the beginning of July until mid-September.

The time required to climb Mount Fuji depends on the route, time of day, weather, day of the week, day & month in the season, and your own physical condition. But on average, you should count on at least 6.5 hours from the 5th station.

This climbing Mount Fuji FAQ will give you more info on the hazards of climbing Mount Fuji off-season: When is Mt. Fuji's official climbing season?

Best wishes and thanks for visiting my site...

Cheers,
Gary
