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.

This Thursday (1st) only a few people were seen walking up Yoshida Trail as heavy rain fell across a wide area of Japan.
Mount Fuji reopened this Thursday (1st) for the summer season after being closed last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
With anti-infection measures in place, the most popular of the 4 routes to the top of the 3.776 meter mountain, Yoshida on the side of Yamanashi Prefecture, has been opened.
Shizuoka Prefecture, which administers the other three remaining routes, said it plans to open them on July 10th. The mountain will be accessible to visitors until September 10th.
As part of efforts to reduce the risk of infections, visitors are asked to fill out health status sheets and check their temperatures before ascending the mountain, according to Yamanashi Prefecture.
Fuji Subaru Line, a road halfway up the mountain that is open 24 hours in normal years, has reduced its operating hours from 3:18 am to XNUMX:XNUMX pm to cut down on the number of climbers trying to make quick climbs during the night.
This Thursday, only a few people were seen walking up the Yoshida route as heavy rain fell across a wide area of Japan.
Last year, both provinces closed all 4 routes amidst the coronavirus pandemic for the first time since 1960.

Saturday 25th January 2020, we had a very fun excursion to Mount Fuji, even with the weather raining or not the day was good.
With a little bit of cold, even in the winter season, we noticed a certain reduction in snow, which usually appears at this time of year.
The script was:
Heian Koen Park, Arakurayama Sengen Jinja, Mount Omura, suspension bridge in Izu and lastly the strawberry tasting.
The ghastly flow of mud almost came close to the school, causing fright. It stopped because of a sandy area, which served as a barrier.
The Mount Fuji Erosion Control office, an agency of the MLIT-Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism reported on Monday (22), that there were several large and small-scale mud flows, as a result of one in the Sunday (21).
The mud flow is like an avalanche, that is, a snow slide phenomenon, mixed with water and debris.
On Sunday, between 14 pm and 16 pm, a large mass slid from a height of 2,1 meters from Mount Fuji. Luckily it stopped 500 meters before a school, so no one was involved.
A camera installed in the city of Fujinomiya (Shizuoka) recorded the images of this sludge flow falling over the Osawa River, with a lot of speed.
The last of this magnitude occurred in March 2018. The MLIT is using drones to continue its investigation of the amount of sediment that came down with the flow.
