Mt. Fuji Subashiriguchi-tozandou
Subashiriguchi-tozandou has a long history, crowded with many climbers especially during the Edo period.
Compared to the other trailheads it has abundant foliage, beyond the mountain trail blessed with greenery seasonal flowers and wild birds delight climbers.
Mountain Lodge located at each point is at the best position to keep pace of climbing, which is also an appeal of Subashiriguchi that it is able to safely climb from the elderly to small children.
If the weather's good, you can also see with the naked eye the panoramic view of the Tokyo sky tree Tower, the Yokohama Landmark Tower, the Suruga Bay views.
But above all, the feature of Subashiriguchi is that you can view the rising sun even from the middle of the trail, and can be said to be the best recommended trailhead.

Beautiful trail with great tree cover for the first third. We went off season, which was great. Tough to go up and down in a day, but certainly manageable if you have decent fitness and are used to altitude. I would recommend bringing oxygen

The majesty of sacred Fuji-san is breath taking, both from its beauty and paucity of oxygen bear the summit ;) This route begins in the forest. Start before 6am and beat the crowds. A must in your lifetime.

Great tough trail. Lots of food during seasonal hours. Toilets cost 200-500 yen.

It was a wonderful and refreshing journey to the mt.fuji via Subashiri trails. Mt. Fuji located in Honshu prefecture and it is the highest volcano in Japan at 3776-meter height. Normally Climbing season will open for the public from early July to mid of September. During this period usually, the mountain will be free from snow and people can opt which trails they want to use as per their convenience. There are four trails are currently open for the public, first one is Yoshida trails the popular one also comparatively easy to climb if you are beginner, the second one is Subashiri trails, third on is Gothenba and the final one is Fujinomiya trails. You can get public transport from Shinjuku (near Tokyo) to any above-mentioned trails.
Climbing gears like hiking shoes, UV protected sunglasses, waterproof backpack, rain gears and winter wears is must to get good hiking experience. You can rent it the same from any above-mentioned trails starting point. We need advance booking for that.
