Can you suggest other ways to get mountain hut reservations?

by Julia
(U.S.)

Your website is full of valuable info.

I asked a friend to call all the 8th and 7th station huts for the days I can climb (July 28, 27, 29) and nothing is available for 2 adults and 2 children (9,11). We are so looking forward to summit at sunrise but with young children I am afraid we won't succeed if we don't get a little rest.

Can you suggest other ways to get reservations? Tour companies hold spaces, but we are traveling independently and will arrive at Mt. Fuji from Osaka, not Tokyo.

Are there other sources? Please help. Thanks in advance for any advice.

Thx, Julia. You didn't say which route you're climbing, but if your friend called the huts on the main Yoshida route, https://www.garyjwolff.com/mt-fuji-mountain-huts.html, then you might want to consider the Fujinomiya route which I did last August. It's not nearly as crowded and is closer to Osaka.

Here are the phone numbers for huts on that & the other routes:

Also, you probably won't need a reservation for a short stop for only an hour or two. Even if you do get a reservation, you might not get much 'rest', as the sleeping accommodations aren't that great in Japanese mountain huts.

But to answer your question, I'm afraid I don't know of any other ways to get reservations. Sorry I couldn't help. Have a great trip...

Cheers,
Gary
