The 3 reasons why Fujinomiya 5th station is such a beautiful place in Autumn!!
Drive beyond the clouds with Mt. Fuji Skyline!
We can not get to 5th station by car during climbing season because all the regular vehicle is banned to get in. But all the vehicle is accepted to drive up to Fujinomiya 5th station after the climbing season that is the biggest advantage out of the climbing season. There is free car parks as well. How drivers friendly! It’s easy to get there from some of toll roads. Gotemba I.C on Tomei Express Way is the most convinient I.C if you are coming from Tokyo. Either Fuji I.C on Tomei Express Way or Shin Fuji I.C on Shintomei Express way is the most convenient I.C if you are coming from Osaka and Nagoya. You will enjoy the sea of clouds or the view of Suruga bay on any clear days!
This is the incredible nature. Only 30 minutes walk to Mt. Houei crater.
Did you know that the shape of Mt. Fuji is different looking from the north and the south?
You can see a small bulge at the middle of the mountain from the south. The bulge is Mt. Houei that was made by the last eruption in 1707. There is a huge crater underneath Mt. Houei. You can get to the crater by walk only 30 minutes from Fujinomiya 5th station and the view is awesome. After the small hiking, you should walk through the forest beside the crater. Take good hiking shoes because the trail is sliplly a little bit.
