When will the post office on Mt. Fuji's summit be open?

Hi Gary,

Do you know if Mt. Fuji's summit post office will open at the same time as the Shizuoka Prefecture side of Mt. Fuji, i.e. July 10th (for 2014)?

The Japan Post website still has the opening date of last year listed (Sat. July 13, 2013): http://map.japanpost.jp/pc/syousai.php?id=300123999000

Thanks for your help.

I was in that post office just 2 years ago myself. Here's my pic of it: https://www.flickr.com/photos/wolffman/7847837208/in/set-72157631215550972

Thank you so much for finding that out. It is greatly appreciated and, given that I intend to climb week commencing the 13th July, very welcome news indeed!

From Sat. July 12th till Sun. Aug. 24

Great question!

I just called the Japan post office headquarters and they said this year the Mt. Fuji summit post office will be open 6 am to 2 pm from Sat. July 12, 2014 till Sun. Aug. 24, 2014.

But on days with inclement weather, they might have to close.
