Climbing to the top of Mt. Fuji is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have when you travel to Japan. In fact, Mt. Fuji is actually an active volcano that last erupted in the early 16th century.
While you should probably summit Mt. Fuji during the climbing season between May and early September, you can actually climb year round. In this episode, Tony recounts his Mt. Fuji off-season climbing experience in late September and provides practical tips about how you can do the same including bus transportation options from Kyoto and Tokyo, lodging on the mountain, clothing, gear, and so much more.
