Map Fujinomiya Trail

The Fujinomiya Trail departs from the Fujinomiya Trail 5th Station and leads to the summit from the south side of Mt. Fuji on the Shizuoka Prefecture side (Fujinomiya City).

Features of Fujinomiya Trail

  • The distance to the summit is short because the trail departs from the highest altitude among the four trails.
  • Many climbers choose this trail, following only the Yoshida Trail.
  • The trail has steep slopes and many rocky areas.
  • The ascending trail and descending trail are the same, and climbers rarely take the wrong path. When it's crowded, take turns to ascend and descend.

from 6th Sta. to Summit

  • From the 6th station, there is a steep climb up a rocky area.
  • The Fujinomiya Trail has the same path going up and down, so it gets very crowded at rocky areas. When climbing, ascending is the priority. Let's compromise and pass.
  • A first aid station (hygiene center) will be opened next to ”Ikedakan" hut at the 8th station, with a doctor stationed at all times. However, please check the opening period.
  • Passing through the torii gate just below the summit, you will arrive at the summit in front of Mt. Fuji Hongu Sengen Taisha Okumiya.

Mt.Hoei Trail (Prince Route)

Hoei crater
There is a large crater on the southeast side of Mt. Fuji. This is the youngest crater of Mt. Fuji, which erupted during the Edo period. The Mt. Hoei Trail is a course that crosses the crater. You can enjoy the dynamic appearance of Mt. Fuji as a volcano in the crater, which is sparsely populated with Japanese knotweed and several other types of plants.
It can also be used as a climbing route (commonly known as the Prince Route) that starts at the Fujinomiya 5th Station and goes via the Mt. Hoei Trail to the Gotemba Route. 

Be careful of falling rocks!
The upper part of the crater is prone to collapse, causing rockfall. It is dangerous, so please never walk anywhere other than on the trail.
Use toilets wisely!
There are no restrooms on the Mt. Hoei Trail. During the operating period of the mountain huts, you can use the mountain huts near the 6th station of the Fujinomiya trail and the 7th station of the Gotemba trail.
