Take on the challenge: climbing Japan's most iconic mountain from sea to summit

Fuji City



Japan’s highest and most beautiful mountain, Mt. Fuji was registered as a World Heritage Site in 2013. Climbers usually start the ascent to the top from the 5th station, which is located at 2400m of altitude, but Mt. Fuji Climbing Route 3776 is the only route that starts from the sea and takes you all the way up to the summit of Mt. Fuji (3776m).

Stretching about 42km, almost the same distance as a full marathon, this route offers panoramic views of Mt. Fuji from different angles, as well as one-of-a-kind experiences. In the city area, you can enjoy local foods and souvenirs. If you feel tired, how about a cup of green tea, which Fuji City is famous for? At the Farm Inn, you will be able to rest and taste fresh, locally grown vegetables. The real climbing begins the next morning. As you pass through the forest, you get closer and closer to the summit. The goal is near!



To make the challenge even more fun, join the Route 3776 Stamp Rally. Challengers who collect 4 stamps from the stamp points located along the route will be presented a special certificate and a badge.
