"This was the highlight of my trip to Japan and a goal of mine for years, since my dad lives in Japan. The previous afternoon we spent all day traveling to a town on the base of Fuji. I thought the train would never get there because how slow it was (compared to the Shinkansen). We made it to the town, spent the night, and at the crack of dawn waited for the bus to take us to the 5th Station. We began our hike in fog (or in the clouds really) but it eventually cleared up as we got higher up. Got my hiking stick stamp at each station. Unfortunately, due to time, we were unable to make it to the " - Mount Fuji, CamminatoreAFK, May 26, 2016

One of the more challenging aspects of this climb is finding a way to the trailh" - Mount Fuji, Stewy, Sep 12, 2014
"After a hard climb up Fuji, the family and I decided to tackle the second highest climb in Japan. What we did know is the second highest climb is also allot harder then then Fuji. After a long bus ride to the base of the mountain. We started our journey. We cross over a long suspension bridge. We started the climb up. The trail run a long finger that seams to go on forever, the lower half of the climb you are climbing in a forest. You have to step on roots to climb over the trails. The local club has done a great job adding log steps on sections that are to hard to climb with out a knotted rop" - Kita-dake, Bear, Sep 1, 2014
