My day trip to Mt. Fuji aka Fujisan

  • Good weather is key for the vest Mt.Fuji view. That’s why I decided only the evening before after checking the weather forecast for Mt. Fuji to go. This meant waking up at 6 am to catch a train from Shinjuku station. I paid 2319 yen (April 2024) from Shinjuku to Shimoyoshida Station, Arrived after 9 am and hiked up (approx. 400 or so steps) to the Arakura Fuji Sengen Shrine. The earlier you get here the less you need to queue for that famous photo with Mt Fuji behind the shrine (Yes, there is a queue).
