Posted on: January 28th, 2017 by admin

Our Mount Fuji climb is a specialty trip hosted by Dennis Broadwell owner and guide of Mountain Gurus. Please inquire if you’d like to be included in our trip planning for summer 2018. Our plan is to arrive in historic Kyoto and enjoy of few days of touring the city’s historic sights. We’ll soak up the rich Japanese culture, visit temples, sample the local cuisine and do some light hiking around Kyoto. We then transport to Mount Fuji via the high-speed Shinkansen (bullet train). We’ll climb the mountain via the Fujinomiya or Gotemba route in two days overnighting in a high mountain hut just below the summit. After summiting we descend and travel to Tokyo by train. We conclude our adventure with a tour of modern Toyko. Opportunities for cultural activities include, sightseeing of temples/ historical palaces, overnight in tradition Japanese style home (Ryokan) in Kyoto, Geisha dance and dinner, visit a traditional style Onsen (hot spring), lots of opportunities for experiencing traditional Japanese food and culture.
