Gee. Some people. This clueless gaijin wannabe, " Chilibuddy" is "going to be in Tokyo at the end of the month and climbing Mt. Fuji in May!"
The Official climbing season for Mount Fuji is s from July 1 to the end of August.

Taro, I'll be as frank as you are. I take offense at "Gaijin Wannabe" and I don't do anything just because its "official". My life story is walking in the Other direction. I don't care for official. And I'm not Japanese anyway.

Well, you wanna come to country and violate the law because you're special and "not Japanese anyway": Fine. Please be aware there are mountain police that will NOT take kindly to your climbing a holy mountain, out-of season, without a special permit/registration.

This coming Thursday marks the start of the official Mount Fuji climbing season. Not that you cant climb it any time you wish, but unless you know what you are doing when it comes to climbing mountains, the next 2 months are the ideal time to give it a go. If you really want to that is.
Ascending Fuji-san has a fair few advantages and disadvantages. Perhaps the main disadvantage (apart from slogging up the mountain for 7 hours or so) is that up close Fuji isnt all that pretty. Although thats something of an understatement, as basically its ugly and strewn with all kinds of rubbish.
