I believe that after reading the Mount Fuji mountaineering information on this website, you will have a certain understanding of the itinerary for climbing Mount Fuji, and you can also start planning your own mountaineering itinerary. But why would I share with you some mountaineering groups and Local Tours from Tokyo to Mount Fuji?
In fact, it is very simple. If you go to Mount Fuji with a mountaineering group, you only need to pay a fixed travel fee, and they can solve the problems of buses, mountain huts, mountaineering equipment, etc. for you. And you can also choose some mountaineering groups with mountaineering guides, let them take you to climb Mount Fuji together.
Then you don’t have to worry that no one else will be able to help you if an accident occurs in the middle of the journey. Compared with the itinerary of climbing alone, using a mountaineering group can also allow the guide to take pictures, and the entire mountaineering experience will be greatly improved.

Mt. Fuji local mountaineering group selection
There are different mountaineering groups that can be booked all over Japan. Taking Tokyo as an example, you can find several travel agencies for Mount Fuji mountaineering groups to sign up for.
However, in order to be able to accept applications from overseas tourists and to have many years of experience in organizing mountaineering tours, there are probably only SunShineTour サンシャインツアー and Willer.
Basically, the mountaineering groups of the two companies are not very different. Whether it is transportation, mountain huts, equipment, tour guides, etc., you can freely choose to form a plan that suits you, and the total consumption is not very high. Take a special sightseeing itinerary. It is acceptable to say.
However, the language requirements will be higher, and because these are all mountaineering groups set up for local Japanese people to participate in, so when registering on the website, making an appointment, and setting off, you need to have a certain ability to speak and understand Japanese. Successfully signed up to participate in the mountaineering group, and arrived at the designated meeting point for departure.

Sunshine Tour offers a variety of mountaineering groups to choose from, such as whether to have a guide or not, the starting point in Tokyo, which climbing route to the top of Mount Fuji, the diet arrangements before and after climbing Mount Fuji, etc., as long as you choose before registration The corresponding plan is fine.
The Sunshine Tour's mountaineering groups are mainly 2-day itineraries, the basic cost is about ¥20,000 yen, and you can already choose a mountaineering group that includes a guide (ガイト together).
However, if you would like to make the whole mountaineering trip easier, such as letting them rent mountaineering equipment for you in advance, you can specify to stay at the Yulaiguang Pavilion, you need a guide to lead the tour route to the top of the mountain, and prepare for you when you go down the mountain. After lunch, etc., these need to be paid extra, probably an extra ¥10,000 – ¥18,000 or so.
Of course, you can also book their travel package (フリープラン Free Plan). The content and cost of the itinerary are similar to those of the mountaineering group (ガイト) with a tour guide. They can make the trip take care of everything, but they lack the accompanying Tourist guide.
