#373 Sunrise from Mt. Fuji

Seeing the sunrise from the top of Mt. Fuji is a classic bucket list item.

But first, is the climb.

You can take a bus or train to the 5th station – after that you’re all alone.

Well, with the hundreds of other climbers.


Each station has many huts that offer over-priced food and drinks and shelter.


After several hours of climbing, you finally arrive to see the dawn break.

The Sunrise

It is a breath-taking sight (but also very crowded at the top!)



A less known view is from the other side of the crater, you can see Mt. Fuji’s shadow!

Official climbing season is from early July to early September.
