Do you recommend climbing Mt. Fuji in late August or mid-July?
I've been following your website re: climbing Mt. Fuji for a year or so. Very helpful! Had planned to be in Japan and climb on 25 August as I see you did. It was to be the 50th anniversary year of my first climb, during the Boy Scout World Jamboree 1971. I was bringing my 10 year old grandson as well.
Obviously plans changed due to Covid and no entry from the U.S. Your photos didn't show much traffic on the mountain. Is this due to covid and no international tourists, or schools back own session?
We are now planning to do the trip next August, climb about the same dates. We are planning a little over 2 weeks in Japan. Do you recommend this late August timeframe, or mid July? Obviously have concerns about weather and crowds.
