Ready to go climbing Mount Fuji, but don’t climb often, don’t have equipment and don’t want to spend money?
Perhaps you have already booked air tickets, hotels, and even prepared the itinerary and route planning, but you find that you/your companions do not have enough climbing equipment.
Maybe you are not a frequent climber, and you don’t want to spend a lot of money to buy equipment that will only be used once? Or...you have clothes and backpacks, but you still lack headlights/trekking poles?
It may also be that you want to reserve luggage space for shopping, and don't want to bring too much equipment to Japan for mountaineering?
In fact, it is not very difficult to reserve equipment for climbing Mount Fuji in Japan. The following articles will introduce you to some options for renting mountaineering equipment in Japan.
