Is it dangerous to sit up at the Mt. Fuji summit overnight?

by Lindy
(USA)

Hi! I love your info on all things Mt. Fuji. VERY informative.

I do have a question though. I was hoping to climb up to the summit and then maybe climb back down to the 8th station and then climb back up for sunrise in the morning.

I just realized that I can't climb back down to 8th station. ​​Is it dangerous to sit up at the summit overnight?

Thank you.

I wouldn't recommend it.

Thanks, Lindy.

There are crossover trails between the uphill & downhill portions of the Yoshida Trail at the 8th Station & Old 8th Station, which you can see in this map: https://www.fujiyama-navi.jp/static/fujitozan/img/en/route/img_yoshida_map_b.jpg

There are also mountain huts to stay in at the top of the trail (10th Station): Mt. Fuji Mountain Huts

I don't recommend staying outside overnight at the top, or you're likely to freeze your heinie off and be totally miserable if it rains. :-)

Happy trails...

Cheers,
Gary
