Few other Japanese sites are as iconic as Mount Fuji, Japan’s highest peak and one of the country’s “Three Holy Mountains.” This 12,389-foot (3,776-meter) active volcano is known for its near-perfect conical shape and regarded as a semi-deity in Japanese Shinto religion. Some believe it possesses its own soul.
Mount Fuji is visible for hundreds of miles in every direction so there are plenty of great vantage points from which to admire it. In Tokyo, make your way to the top of the Bunkyo Civic Center or the Tokyo Skytree, both offering stunning views of the mountain towering beyond Tokyo’s skyscrapers. Visibility is best during early morning and late evening, particularly during the colder seasons. Fuji’s classic snowcapped peak is typically clearest from November to May.
Sit on the right side of the train during a journey from Tokyo to Osaka for another prime opportunity to see this famous peak. Take a daytrip from Tokyo to the Fuji Five Lakes region on Mount Fuji’s northern slopes for views of the mountain in a picturesque natural setting.
For an even closer look, journey to the Fuji Subaru Line 5th Station, the most popular of the four 5th stations located on the mountain’s slopes. Aside from occasional snow closures, this spot can be reached year-round via public transportation directly from Tokyo. From the 5th station, you will see the mountain’s peak as well as views over the Fuji Five Lakes area below.
It is believed that Mt. Fuji was first climbed in the 8th century. Hike to the summit today in 5 to 7 hours with a 3- to 4-hour return. The mountain is officially open July through mid September, with several different routes available to the top. Although physically challenging, the climb is within the capabilities of even inexperienced hikers and climbers. More than 300,000 locals and tourists make this memorable trek each year, many planning to reach the peak for a splendid sunrise.
Find Mount Fuji on the border between Shizuoka and Yamanashi Prefectures. Reach its 5th stations by bus from Tokyo.
The hotel was very clean and modern. The staff was friendly and helpful.
I hope they could put up BIG signs re taking a shower before entering the onsen water. For the 3 days I was there, almost no one followed that simple logical hygiene rule!
the service is just fantastic!! I will feel shamed to leave any negative comments . Only thing is the location. The hotel is located right on the top of the big hill. Without taking shuttles or cable car, it will be very difficult for the visitors to get there from Gora station.
Easy access from the train station taking the red route bus. The staff was very nice. Breakfast and dinner was well prepared. The chef had some nice dishes for dinner. The room was a traditional Japanese room, very nicely decorated. The onsen is available onsite. Really clean hotel.
The property is big but still able keep high standard in every single details. Will come back next time when around that area. Good management!
Had a wonderful time at Fuji View Hotel. The spread of breakfast buffet is wide and is of high quality. Last but not least , the view of Mount Fuji at different point of time from the room.
