Map Subashiri Trail

The Subashiri Trail departs from the Subashiri Trail 5th Station and leads to the summit from the east side of Mt. Fuji on the Shizuoka Prefecture side (Oyama Town).

Features of Subashiri Trail

  • The forest zone expands to high altitudes, which will protect climbers from sunlight during climbing.
  • Going through the forest, you can see the sunrise and the shadow cast by Mt. Fuji from anywhere.
  • You can experience sunabashiri (steep slope made of soft volcanic gravel) to go down the descending trail in a straight line.
  • The ascending Trail and descending Trail are separated. The section from the Hon-8th Station to the summit joins the Yoshida Trail.
  • Be careful not to get lost at night or in thick fog owing to the poor visibility in the forest zone. The ascending Trail and descending Trail are separated.


An English version is currently in preparation.
