“Mt. Fuji Climbing Route 3776” is a 42 kilometer-long climbing route to Mt. Fuji, which starts from its base at sea level (zero altitude) to the summit.

It is a very challenging route as you have to walk on paved road for the first 32 kilometers and then hike up 10 kilometers before finally reaching the summit.

This is an excursion which you can casually enjoy. You can complete this attraction by getting a stamp at 4 different points and taking a picture at the top of Mt. Fuji.

You can challenge yourselves to do it either within 4 days and 3 nights or a couple of day-trips. An original badge will be presented to winners. Accept the challenge!!
