When climbing Mt. Fuji it is convenient to head to the mountain entrance by bus. There is a parking lot in the climbing entrance. However, most of the seasons can not be reached by private car at the mountain entrance except the Gotemba route. So buses run from the station towards all four climbing entrance.
Can you go by car until the 5th station which is the climbing entrance of Mt. Fuji?
Since the road runs until the fifth station where there is a climbing entrance of Mt.Fuji, it is accessible by car. Some people may think that they want to go to Mt.Fuji climbing by private cars, but traffic restrictions are implemented in July and August at Yoshida Route, Subashiri Route and Fujinomiya Route. For this reason, we need to park private cars at the parking lot at the foot and go to the mountain entrance by shuttle bus. Only Gotemba route can go to the fifth station by private car during the Fuji climbing season. The bus bound for climbing entrance comes out of the station at the foot. I recommended because you can access climbing entrance directly as you get off the train. No reservation is necessary. Depending on the climbing route, there are cases where the number of buses is limited, so let’s plan a margin. In addition, the Yoshida route also has a high-speed bus operated. Since it is possible to go directly to the climbing entrance from the city center, you can enjoy climbing efficiently.
