After 2 years without opening the route, this year people will be able to climb the most famous mountain in Japan.

On Wednesday (23) the Yamanashi provincial government said it would open the season to climb Mount Fuji, on July 1, after 2 years.

A safety survey of the Yoshida trail was conducted in joint action with officials from Yamanashi Prefecture and the ENV-Ministry of Environment. They confirmed that it is possible to reach the summit. 

Last year, all four trails, including those on the Shizuoka prefecture side, were closed due to an epidemic of the new coronavirus. So it's the first season in 2 years this summer.   

Climbers will be required to submit a 7-item health check sheet for the 5th season. In addition, the mountain huts will introduce a reservation system to avoid crowding.

Regarding the three trails on the Shizuoka side, the local government is adjusting to the goal of opening on July 10th.
