Can I rent simple boots/jacket and trousers to climb Mt. Fuji?

by Pippa
(U.K.)

Hi, I'm wondering if you can advise.

I'm bicycle touring around southern Japan and very keen to climb Mt. Fuji on the last few days. Problem is due to carrying luggage, I cannot realistically bring any trekking gear.

Can you advise if I can hire simple boots/jacket and trousers? It would be early September.

Thanks in advance,
Pippa

Well, I do think that there are so many outlets that are offering such facilities around the place. And you can enquire with some of them regarding the cost for these stuffs. Wish you a very good trekking experience.

There is an english speaking staff, so you can ask them to deliver it to the place you stay. You can just drop off at a convenience store which was so easy!

Yes, you can.
by: Gary Wolff

Yes, Pippa, I'm sure you can, provided you can navigate the Japanese language ok. :-)

Here's a recent article on that topic:
http://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2013/07/16/national/after-mount-fujis-unesco-listing-climbing-gear-rental-business-booming

This article mentions an outdoor gear rental shop called Soranoshita in Fujiyoshida, at the foot of Mount Fuji.

If the online method is too intimidating, you might just inquire at one of the local Tokyo outdoor shops. Perhaps a question I answered a few weeks ago will help you find a good shop in Tokyo where you can do that:
