Is there any problem taking small children up to the 5th Station?

No problem

Parul, I can't think of any reason why not.

The Fuji Subaru Line 5th Station is a city in and of itself, so you'll find just about everything you'd need to keep a 2-year-old happy. :-) Convenience stores, restaurants, souvenir shops, toilets, firemen, police, mountain huts, guidance center, post office, and even a viewing platform.

Please be mindful, though, that this year the Fuji Subaru Line is closed to private vehicles for 53 days from Thurs. July 10 till Sun. Aug. 31, so if you take a bus, you'll probably have to buy a ticket for your 2-year-old, although children's fares are usually half-price.

Best wishes...
