Night climbing Fuji-san

Japan’s greatest natural landmark, Mount Fuji attracts some 200,000 climbers every year, concentrated around the official season of July and August when snowfall is minimal and conditions are mild.

Camaraderie amongst hundreds of like-purposed people may counterbalance the fact that at peak times there are literally queues in some places. But purists can try tackling the 6 hour hike up the volcano at night: if you time your arrival at the summit to coincide with sunrise you’re in for a spectacle.

This snippet was published in June/July 2006 as part of Lastminute.com’s Smart Summer Stuff booklet, distributed with a 3 million print-run through various publications inc. The Observer, The Sunday Times, GQ, Cosmopolitan and Marie Claire
