Hiking Mount Fuji during the summer climbing season can be fun, rewarding and a great way to experience Japan. It requires little expertise or equipment but a lack of preparation and disregard for simple, yet critical, safety precautions can result in serious injury or death. Anyone in good physical condition can climb Mount Fuji but it is not easy and should be approached as a legitimate physical and mental challenge. The official climbing season for Mount Fuji is from 1 July to 26 August.
