Mt. Fuji Subashiri Trail: Complete Trail Map and 5th Station Starting Point

by Ryu_C@RakuRakuJP

Mountaineering route information – the required route Subashiri Trail

Starting height: about 2000m
Elevation difference from the top of the mountain: about 1700m
Uphill distance budget: 7.8km Approximate time required: 6 hours and 30 minutes
Downhill distance budget: 6.2km Approximate time required: 3 hours

Location: On the side of Shizuoka Prefecture (in Oyama Town), starting from the east side of Mount Fuji.
Departure point: Depart from Subashiri Exit 5th Station

Features: There are forest belts on the climbing path, and you have the opportunity to watch the forests and plants of Mount Fuji. The downhill road is in a straight line, and you can experience the fun of "big sand walking" sliding in the sand.
Route features: The climbing trail merges with the Yoshida Line at the eighth station, and the climbing trail and the falling trail are divided into two separate lines. Climbers and descenders will walk two separate lines.
Note: At night or during dense fog, the forest belt will have relatively insufficient light. Be careful to get lost and pay attention to risks.

Subashiri mountain hut information: Compared with the Yoshida line, the Suzuru line undoubtedly has fewer mountain huts. Taking the previous comparison of Bahewushao (Oraikokan), there are more than 10 on the Yoshida line and only 8 on the Suzo line.
If you consider that you need more supplies during mountaineering, or you need to rest at any time, you may go Mountaineering Route - Yoshida Route would be more appropriate. Mustering can be said to be the choice of experienced climbers.

Mountain trail information

There are small shops and restrooms at the entrance of the route that must be walked.
Depart from the 5th station of the Sushi Line, pass by the ancient Mitake Shrine, and then slowly climb up to the 8th station through the forest belt.
When you get near the seventh station, the shade of the trees will start to fade. It should be OK if you want to watch Goraiko or Kagefuji.

Please note: the entire required route isno ambulance station, in case of an emergency/accident please call immediately110/119 to the emergency rescue team.
Near the entrance of the 5th station parking lot, there is a tourist office, which provides information on mountaineering, weather and route guidance. (The sightseeing office will only operate during the opening period of the hiking trail)
Information on various hiking trails and mountain hut reservation materials can be obtained in the tourist office. Sometimes there will be police stationed during the opening of the mountain, and there are also staff who can speak foreign languages (other than Japanese) in the case office to provide guidance services.
There are two small shops at the 5th station of Subashiri Exit, which are usually open until November. However, only water and simple mountaineering equipment are sold, and other necessary items for mountaineering should be prepared before departure. If there is not enough water in the middle, there are water sales in the mountain huts along the hiking trail.
Restroom Information: There is a 24-hour public restroom at the 5th station of the Subizukou; 24-hour restrooms are available at the 6th station, the 6th station, the 7th station, the 7th station, and the 8th station (fees apply).

After arriving at the eighth station, there will be more people joining the Yoshida route, so be careful not to bump into the climbers around~~ After all, everyone may be tired (laugh~).
Just like the Yoshida route, you must take the route above the 8th station and above the Mt. Fuji Hongu Sengen Taisha Okumiya. It can be regarded as a place of gods. Everyone should remember to take good care of Mt. Fuji!
Pass through the Goraiguang Pavilion located in the eighth and five spoons, and then walk through the torii gate of the ninth station, and you will reach the gate of the Kusushi Shrine on the top of the mountain~
Restroom Information: There are 24-hour restrooms (charges apply) at the 8th station, 8th station, and mountain huts on the top of the mountain.

Downhill Road Information

When going down from the top of the mountain, you will start from the dedicated downhill road. Up to Edoya, the downhill route is the same as the Yoshida route (the sign will show the red route and the yellow Yoshida route at the same time).

When you arrive at the divergence point, you must follow the route and follow the direction indicated in red.Japanese-speaking mountaineering guides are on duty during part of the day. If in doubt, ask before proceeding.
Restroom information: Mountaintop restrooms provided by the Environmental Bureau (limited hours from 4:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.), Upper Edo House at the 8th Station (24 hours), Lower Edo House at the 8th Station (24 hours), and the Seventh Station Mujianqing Pavilion, Dayang Pavilion at the seventh station, and Wuhe Yoshino House. Since setting up and maintaining toilets on the mountain requires a certain amount of expenditure, most of the toilets are paid toilets, ranging from ¥200 to ¥300 each time, please bring your own ¥100 coins.

After passing the divergence point, it is time to experience "Osago walking" from the seventh station! You can try the fun of sliding in a straight line on the sand~XD
When you walk to the fifth station of the downhill road, you will pass through the forest belt, and the sunlight will be weakened accordingly. So even if you don’t plan to travel at night, you should prepare your headlights to walk and follow the route! Then after passing through the forest belt, you will return to the 5th Station of Subashiriguchi~

If it is the first time to climb Mount Fuji in Japan, it is recommended to choose the Yoshida route. After all, there are more facilities and support on the mountain. In case of altitude sickness/discomfort, it is relatively easy to stay in a mountain hut to rest. However, there are relatively few mountain huts that have to walk the route, and there is relatively little support. Those who plan to take the required route must first consider their own experience and physical strength!

Of course, if you are led by an experienced team, it is still attractive to take the must-go route (just for Dasha~laugh~). How fun is Dasha Walking? I think you can only understand it by experiencing it yourself. However, you need to have enough equipment at any time before you start, even if you are a beginner, novice, or veteran, don't underestimate Mt. Fuji!
