Mt.Fuji: Current Climbing Status

Including the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) response

Summit access for the public will remain closed during the 2020 summer season.

In response to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, no mountain huts will be in service, in order to avoid spreading the infection. All major routes to the summit and other trails as well as public facilities including first-aid centers and bio-toilets will be closed during 2020 as it would be difficult to maintain an adequate level of security under such conditions.
