"Climb Mt. Fuji!!" Japan Things to Do Tip by dln6874

Japan Things to Do: 736 reviews and 1,308 photos

During the summer months in Japan, you can climb Mt. Fuji. The hike generally starts around 10pm, and you hike through the night so that you can catch the sunrise at the top!! It can get very cold up top and you may have to force your way through the crowd of other hikers, but it's definitely an experience to remember. The view from the top at sunrise looked like I was in heaven (the temple arch and clouds added to the feel).

Address: Hakone?
Directions: You can take a bus from Shinjuku.
