We booked Hut 7 for Monday night, but looks like pretty heavy rain on Tuesday. We have reasonable gear, but everyone says typhoon is coming. Any advice?

Not advisable
by: Gary Wolff

"Although it is possible to climb Mt. Fuji outside of the official climbing season (with permission from the Yamanashi Police Dept.), it is not recommended, as most facilities, including most mountain huts, are closed; weather conditions are unstable and unpredictable; rescue personnel are limited, climbing conditions may be extremely hazardous; and public transportation access is minimal."
