Is it possible to walk up and down the Fujinomiya Trail within a day?

by Kelvin

Hi Gary

Thanks very much for the informative website! I am quite inspired by your hike up the fujinomiya trail.

My wife and I are planning to hike Mt Fuji (in two weeks' time ... I know, it's very last minute planning). We are reasonably fit, in our early - mid thirties.

I am not too keen on the idea of staying in a mountain hut (and am not too fussed about seeing sunrise / sunset). Just wondering - do you think it's possible to walk up and down the fujinomiya trail within a day?

We are planning on spending the night in a hotel in fujinomiya, so we can catch the early bus to 5th station (arriving at 8 a.m.) The last bus from 5th station back to fujinomiya, we realize, is at 7 p.m. ... so that's only 11 hours in total to walk up and down.

Would be grateful for your insights (and certainly won't hold you liable if your answer is yes, and we somehow don't manage to get down on time!)

Cheers,
Kelvin
