Where to start climbing Mt. Fuji from the base?

You can catch a bus to the trailhead

Yeah, like Nike said in their ads, "Just do it!" :-)

The original Yoshida Climbing Route starts from the base of Mt. Fuji @ the Fuji Sengen Shrine (elev. 850m), but many climbers hike from Umagaeshi (located just below the 1st Station) from where it only takes two and a half hours to reach the 5th station.

Bus service is available to the Fuji Sengen Shrine, and up the road to Naka-no-Chaya and Umagaeshi, from Mt. Fuji Station (formerly Fujiyoshida Station).
