What you'll do

I, Mt Fuji guide will bring you to Virtual Mt Fuji climbing experience as an Mt Fuji Specialist.

Log in to the Zoom room, there is a meeting point of Mt Fuji tour. Begin with a greeting and every participant's' self-introduction, we became a "Team" to Climb together.

Take a bus toward Mt Fuji 5th station. On the way, I'll explain the concept of the virtual tour, our passion & mission, and How to fully enjoy this virtual tour, etc.

After arriving at the 5th station, We share the screen of Mt Fuji photos which we took in these 2 years. I also show you this year's special 5th station photos and explain real present Mt Fuji.

On the first day, We climb from the 5th station to the 8th station for 4 hours (10min=virtual). You'll see diverse alpine plants and dynamic Mt Fuji views.

Stay over at the Mt hut, Then we start night climb heading to the summit. You can experience a hard climbing in the dark and unforgettable view of gradually getting brighter sky. Even though this is "Virtual", When you reach the summit, You'll be touched and see marvelous sunrise.

We'll go the crater trekking via the highest point and see another world like view, which is normally difficult to do.

In the end, straight climb down to the 5th station.

Taking advantage of "Virtual", I'll show you a ​rare scene​ like "Shadow Fuji" and "Snowing summit" and views of different weathers.

I’ve been working as a Mt Fuji guide since 2004 and climbed Mt Fuji more than 100 times.
This year, Mt Fuji closes for all summer Due to Covid-19.
So We’ve made the Virtual Mt Fuji tour project team in the Mountain Guide organization in Taishikan lodge at Mt Fuji.

Fuji is a special mountain. Not only the highest in Japan.
It is a noble peak and religious mountain​ loved and worshiped by many people. Fuji is the symbolic mountain of Japan and home to the Japanese people's hearts.

While nobody can climb Mt Fuji this summer, I am very honored and pleasured to connect Mt Fuji and people. Please enjoy it’s the ​dynamically marvelous view like you really climbing. And someday my dream is We can climb it together.

Ko and Daiki are Co-hosts. We are also Mt Fuji guide who climbed Mt Fuji about 100 times

Since our hiking group hadn't been able to gather in person for nearly two months due to COVID, we really enjoyed this chance to hike together virtually with Ko. He was very knowledgeable about the route, and gave us both a good overview of the culture and history of Mt. Fuji as well as practical/specific info on the climb. In addition to answering our many questions along the way, he also provided great "color commentary" throughout the tour ("bochi bochi) with details such as the ramen being made with melted Fuji glacier ice, the brands burned into the wooden walking sticks at each station and personal anecdotes from the groups he's led. I felt we finished Ko's virtual tour with a newfound respect and appreciation for the challenges and rewards of this once-in-a-lifetime, sacred trek.

What a fantastic and beautiful experience to 'climb' the Moutain Fuji with an experienced mountaineering expert and other fun guests. The whole experience is informative and engaging. Time flew by so quickly with its energy and pace. We start by some interactive activities to understand the facts and history behind Fuji. Then we started our 'two-day' walking journey and it felt so real with its route, stops, logistics and most importantly, the stunning view we got along the way. Through explicit instructions about food/drink/stops and hiking techniques, beautiful photos taken by professional mountain guides, as well as the thoughtful process facilitated by our guide, I am ready for a real Fuji experience one day!

This was a truly immersive experience! So much fun. I booked it for my dad and myself for his birthday since we can’t be together in covid and it was so special. Our guide was very thorough, kind, and knowledgeable, and the photos were beautiful! Highly recommend!

Это мое первое онлайн впечатление, не знала, что на Фудзияме настолько красиво и не только при восходе солнца. Очень крутой подъем, моё колено было шокировано даже при онлайн восхождении 😃 Мне понравилось, интересный опыт

Our guide was very knowledgeable and also friendly. However, I was expecting something more than a slide show. Maybe some GoPro footage. Take me on the experience, rather than just show photos of others doing the hike. But, I did learn a lot about this famous hike.
