Can you do a traverse of Mt. Fuji (Yoshida to Gotemba)?
Planning to do the traditional 2-day route up Mt. Fuji on Sept. 8-9 with a friend and am thinking of descending via the Gotemba trail and catching the train from there back to Tokyo. Is this possible or advised?
(Recently read in one place that you are required to descend the same way you came up, which would not be a problem, but the traverse seems like a natural way to add variety and some fun with the scree slide...)
