It is “Kitaguchi Hongu Fuji Sengen Shrine” located a few minutes on foot from Mt.Fuji Station.
Lightly pray for a safe trip and off you go!
After passing through the parking lot on the right side of the main shrine, the mountain trail will appear after a while.
Behind the main hall, Created by Hidari Jingoro “Ebisu” and “Daikokuten” there is.
11：55 mountain trail entrance
Here’s what the route looks like
Go straight through the forest road
13：00 Naka no Chaya
1 hour so far
Point of departure：出発地
Continue on the forest road
In the old days, people used to come here by horse, but the road becomes steep, so they return the horse here.
There was navigation to the top of the mountain.
(to the summit)
I saw the torii gate.
After passing through the forest road, you will feel like entering the mountain from here.
14：35 first station
It’s finally the first time.
About 2 hours so far…
Let’s keep moving forward
15：15 second station
I will continue climbing the mountain road
About halfway in distance from the foot of the mountain to the summit
But the time is wrong
15：45 third station
16：15 4th Station
a little cloudy
Plunge into the clouds hanging over Mt. Fuji!
17：10 Fifth Station/Sato Hut
Here, instead of heading straight to the top of the mountain,
I will head to the Subaru Line 5th Station and take a short break there.
Of course, you can also go straight to the top of the mountain.
After a while, the Fuji Subaru line came into view.
Normally, you can come here by bus.
If it is a general Yoshida route, it will start from here.
17：45 Fuji Subaru Line 5th Station
It’s fun to have a souvenir shop!
If you turn around, Mt. Fuji!
If you look down, you can see a sea of clouds!
Dinner at the free rest area
If you climb normally, is it 6 or 7 hours from here to the summit?
19：45 Subaru Line 5th Station Departure
The sun is starting to set, so turn on your headlights!
But I’m a little tired…
I will never fully recover
The reality of walking in a different place than usual at night raises the tension!
Let’s go to the top of the mountain! !
A little hot to walk…
20：20 sixth station
The entrance fee of 1000 yen is collected here
The guide told us about the condition of the summit.
“It seems that the top of the mountain is covered with an umbrella,
You can’t see the sunrise from the top of the mountain.”
“From now on, the summit will be at 2 o’clock.
It might be just right to go slowly
I think it would be good to climb up and get down a little before the sunrise
The wind is strong and it might be difficult to go around the bowls.”
This area is the limit of plant life
It’s dark and I don’t know anything
Trees and grass grow thickly below this point, while no vegetation grows above this point.
“Fujiyoshida City” below
I’m glad I came.
It’s raining, so I’m wearing a raincoat
21：30 Hana hut
I’m getting tired
21：50 7th Station/Sunrise Hall
it’s raining hard
what are you doing I ask myself
It’s just too hard to go any further
I will stay here today.
You can also see the sunrise in front of the mountain hut
I was able to stay without a reservation because it was vacant!
Room without meals 6500 yen
In the past, I forced myself to climb and had a hard time, so recently I started staying at a mountain hut.
