Mt. Fuji (World Heritage Site) Drive 2 hours from Tokyo Central Area

Introduction

Mount Fuji, located between Shizuoka and Yamanashi prefectures, is the tallest mountain in Japan at 3776m (12,389 ft). UNESCO added Mount Fuji to the World Heritage List in 2013. It normally takes 2 hours from the Tokyo center to Mount Fuji fifth station by car. Mount Fuji's exceptionally symmetrical cone, with snow cap, is a well-known symbol of Japan and it is frequently depicted in art and photographs.

When to Travel

Japan enjoys four distinct seasons. We recommend you plan your trip to the fifth station of Mount Fuji between April and October. Due to the closure of Subaru Line, which leads to the fifth station, you are not able to hike up the mountain from late October to March, but the view of the mountain from a distance is exquisite during this time of the year as crisp air allows a full and clear view of the mountain.
