Climbing Mount Fuji (3776 meters), Japan's highest and most prominent mountain. The mountain itself may look more attractive from afar than from close up, but the views on clear days and the experience of climbing through the early morning hours are very rewarding.
Gotemba 5th Station (Gotemba Trail) :
At only 1400 meters above sea level the Gotemba 5th Station is by far the lowest of the fifth stations, and, as a consequence, the Gotemba Trail is the longest trail. The ascent to the summit of Mount Fuji takes about seven to ten hours, and travels along an exposed trail with only a few mountain huts found around the 7th and 8th stations, and nearly featureless terrain made up of fields of lava rock.
