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.
