The 3rd Edition of Climbing Mt. Fuji " A Complete Guidebook" is your complete preparation package and the only guidebook you will need to design your Mt. Fuji climb. The latest edition includes improved off-season climbing information, enhanced route maps, (12 route maps in total) new information on the Hoei Crater, Mt. Hachijo-Fuji and Mt. Fuji area hot springs, as well as additional Mt. Fuji pictures (29 pictures in total) and more. Up-to-date information about climbing Mt. Fuji is available at the following website. Climbing-Mt-Fuji.com The primary reason for publishing the original Climbing Mt. Fuji Guidebook in 2013 was to fill a gap identified by my private clients. Many complained of the lack of available English information about climbing Mt. Fuji. My goal was to not only provide practical information about climbing Mt. Fuji but also to introduce some of the cultural rituals associated with climbing historic Mt. Fuji. Climbing Mt. Fuji is more than just a hiking experience. It is a unique cultural experience with its own set of unspoken customs that can be easily missed or stomped on unknowingly if not careful. The people working on Mt. Fuji during the climbing season are a tight community who respect the historical traditions. As one of the few non-Japanese Mt. Fuji guides creating and maintaining wholesome relationships with locals was key to being accepted into this close-knit society. This guidebook provides accurate reliable information because it was written by a real Mt. Fuji guide who has years of climbing experience and every imaginable type of Mt. Fuji climb under his belt. As a professional Mt. Fuji guide, it is my privilege to share my experience and knowledge, including my qualified advice along with my personal recommendations that I commonly reserve for clients with all those who have set their hearts on climbing this majestic mountain.
