It’s a common misconception that the mountain to climb in Japan is Mount Fuji. While it is both the most striking and tallest mountain in the Japanese archipelago, I would argue it’s infinitely better to climb a nearby mountain to marvel at the snow-capped beauty, rather than to climb Fuji itself. Luckily, there are several nearby peaks that provide a spectacular vista with Mount Fuji center stage, which I’ll cover below.

Every summer (from July to September), the promise of climbing Mount Fuji to see the sunrise attracts bus load after bus load of visitors. The usual format is to hike up during the evening, optionally staying for a few hours in a cramped 6,500 yen/person hut and doing the final leg in the early hours just in time to catch the iconic first rays of the sun rising over the eastern edge of Japan.

While we do include information in our Trip Notes about visa requirements, we always recommend that passengers check with their local embassy as visa rules can change without warning. Embassy websites in your home country will always have information about requirements, visa costs and will provide the required forms. If you are uncomfortable with the visa process, you can visit a travel agent who can arrange these for you at a cost.

Please contact the relevant local embassy, or visit a travel agent, to organise your visa/s.

Intrepid can’t assist in the actual application of visas, but you can do this through the embassy or with the support of a travel agent.
