Is a 1-day hike up the Subashiri Trail compatible with the bus schedule?

by Sylvain
(San Francisco)

Hello Gary,

Thank you for putting together this website. We want to climb Mount Fuji during the day, Subashiri Trail starting from Gotemba.

According to the bus timetable: http://www.japan-guide.com/bus/fuji.html

First bus arrive at 8:35AM and leave at 19:40
According to hiking estimation, it might be a bit short to do the round trip to catch the bus on time. As I am not sure if the time estimation is just over estimated. What happened if we reach station 5th after 7:40PM? Is there a way to get a taxi?

Cheers!

PS: we are thinking about hiking there on Wednesday as tomorrow weather does not look promising.


***************
I don’t think so, Sylvain. The average hiking time up and down the Subashiri trail f​rom the 5th station is around 11 hours, so unless your name is Wonder Woman, :-) I don’t believe it’s practical to think you can squeeze it all in as a day hike.

I think it’s better to take a couple days to climb at a much more leisurely pace, which will allow you more precious time to take in all the beautiful natural surroundings.

Sorry, I'm not familiar with the taxi situation at the Subashiri 5th station.

Thanks for the kind words and for visiting my site…

Cheers,
Gary
