While I was spending time navigating Tokyo with a ‘tween awhile back, my daughter and I attempted a half-day climb of Mt. Fuji.
Although it didn’t end the way we’d planned, we both still enjoyed the challenge, so I wrote a guest post about climbing Fuji-san for Away.com.
The climbing season for Fuji is July and August.
If you just want a quick “touch and go” on the mountain, take a bus to the Fifth Station, walk around a little and skip the sore legs.
Mt. Fuji is a little over an hour southwest of Tokyo.
