The blue route up Fuji—straightforward, steep and rocky

Fujinomiya is the blue trail up Mt. Fuji , a straightforward proposition with the ascent and descent using the same path, and the Fujinomiya 5th Station is the start of it.

The trailhead is at 2,400 meters, the highest of the four fifth station trailheads, and the path is generally steep and rocky. There are mountain huts at every station, so you can rest up when needed. Be aware that this is a crowded route, though, so you may be spurred on in spite of yourself.

How to Get There

Catch one of the many mountain-climbing buses running from Mishima Station on the JR Tokaido and Shinkansen lines, Shin-Fuji Station on the JR Shinkansen Line, Fuji Station on the JR Tokaido and Minobu lines, or Fujinomiya Station on the JR Minobu Line.

Expected times up and down

The average time going up is five hours, and three going down. There are shops, an information office, and public restrooms at the trailhead, and the eighth station has a first-aid center.
