Mt Fuji: Where the earth meets the sky

Mount Fuji, an enduring symbol of Japan, offers a diverse range of experiences, from adventurous hikes to serene lakeside escapes.

Standing tall and proud as Japan's highest peak, Mount Fuji, or "Fuji-san," is a timeless symbol of natural beauty and spiritual significance. For travellers seeking adventure and breathtaking vistas, a journey to this iconic volcano is an absolute must.

Mount Fuji's perfectly symmetrical cone shape is recognized worldwide. Its snow-capped summit stands in stark contrast to the lush greenery that surrounds it in the warmer months. Whether you're an outdoor enthusiast, a nature lover, or a photographer, the view of Fuji-san is a sight to behold and capture.

For adventurous souls, scaling Mount Fuji's summit is an unforgettable challenge. The climbing season typically runs from early July to mid-September when the weather is milder. Hiking the well-marked trails offers an opportunity to witness the sunrise from the "Land of the Rising Sun." The moment when dawn breaks over the horizon from Mount Fuji's peak is a spiritual experience like no other.

The Five Lakes region at the base of Mount Fuji offers a serene escape. Lake Kawaguchi, one of the five, is a popular spot for boat rides and lakeside strolls. Capture mirror-like reflections of Fuji-san on the calm waters during clear days. The region also boasts hot spring resorts, providing a soothing retreat after a day of exploration.

Just a stone's throw from Mount Fuji lies the charming town of Hakone, nestled in the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park. Hakone is renowned for its stunning landscapes, including Lake Ashi, where you can take a scenic boat ride with Fuji-san as your backdrop. Soak in the natural hot springs, or "onsen," that are abundant in the region and rejuvenate your body and soul.

Mount Fuji is easily accessible by bus, car, or train from nearby cities, including Tokyo making it a straightforward addition to your Japan itinerary.
