Can you camp on Mt. Fuji?

by Adriel
(Sydney, NSW, Australia)

Hey I'm gonna be climbing up Fuji in late July.
I was wondering if it was allowed/possible to set up camp just on the mountain.

I have a swag that I would sleep in that is able to handle temps between -10 and 10.

So is it possible? Or would the ground be too uneven, and is it culturally acceptable? I don't want to be sleeping on a holy mountain if it offends the Japanese.

Thanks!

Nope.

I'm afraid not, Adriel, as camping on Japan's holiest mountain & World Heritage Site is expressly forbidden.

But the Mt. Fuji mountain huts have outside rest areas with tables or benches where you can catch a breather. Or for a nominal fee, if it's not too crowded, usually they'll let you slip inside for a short-term catnap.

If you decide to stay overnight, you might want to consider the Fujisan Hotel at the 8th Station (near where the Yoshida & Subashiri trails merge).

Happy trails...
