Temperature Difference on Mt. Fuji
- Temperature fluctuates due to the large difference in altitude between the 5th station and the summit (temperature lowers at a rate of approximately -0.6℃ per 100 m of altitude). At the summit, the temperature is low enough to have snowfall even in the summer. When the wind is blowing, you will feel even colder at the same temperature (approximately -1.0℃ wind chill per 1 m/sec of wind velocity).
- The difference in temperature between the foot of the mountain and the summit may exceed 20℃. When the wind is blowing, you will feel even colder. Make sure to prepare protection against the cold.
