Only 30-40 minutes

Greetings! It only takes 30-40 minutes from the Fuji-Subaru Line (Kawaguchiko) 5th Station trailhead to the 6th Station & Seikanso.

Plus, you gain less than 100 meters in elevation, so the trail is still comparatively level at this early stage.

No mountain climbing equipment is needed anywhere on Mt. Fuji.

More info on Seikanso & the other mountain huts on the Yoshida Trail can be found here: Mt. Fuji Mountain Huts
