I was told almost anyone could do this trail, and it was beginner friendly. All I can say is that I must have a very different idea of beginner!
If you have visited Sapporo for any length of time you will certainly have seen Mt. Moiwa, and you may even have taken the cable car to its top. It is a beautiful destination where couples enjoy the sunset or groups of tourists take a thousand photos of the view. But that is not how you “do” a mountain. You climb it. Properly. With good shoes. And with sweat in your eyes. It’s the journey, not the destination.
Mt. Fuji is one of the must-see sights of Japan, with beautiful scenery, cultural significance, and plenty of activities around the base for you and your travelling companions. So what better way to enjoy Japan`s most famous icon and tallest mountain than to climb it?
