Mt. Fuji can be enjoyed even in winter! Weekends for two nights and winter sports trip as well
After December when full winter comes, you can enjoy play which can only be enjoyed in winter than the other seasons. For example, it is a sloping area in the vicinity of Mt. Fuji, which is recommended as a playground where children like 5 years old can enjoy such as skiing, snowboarding, and snowball fighting! In Yamanashi and Shizuoka prefecture, the 2nd station of Mt. Fuji will be your best choice If you want to indulge your time with Mt. Fuji and you'll be satisfied.
Winter season where the air is clear and the scenery looks beautiful
Compared with other seasons in winter, it is said that the air is clean and clear. This is because there are fewer dirty substances such as dust contained in the atmosphere in the winter, and the amount of water vapor decreases as it is further dried, making it easier to see the distant scenery and stars in the night sky compared to spring etc.
Mt. Fuji is also accessible in winter?
Mountain tops of Mt. Fuji cannot enter because climbing regulations are applied in the winter season. The Yoshida route (Yoshidaguchi Fifth station · Izumi waterfall ~ mountaintop) on the side of Yamanashi prefecture, which is crowded with climbers in the summer season, is closed in winter (September is full of road closure) after September and to go to the second stop For the fifth station SUBARU line - Yoshidaguchi Gokugo, from around November, the winter season will be closed entirely.
However, as we are going to introduce you this time, playing at Mt. Fuji is located in the second station of Mt. Fuji, so it is possible to travel even in winter. It is also good to go to Mt. Fuji in the winter with safety in winter.
When driving, as the road surface tends to be slippery due to snow in Mt. Fuji direction, preparing winter tires is a good idea.
What is the weather / temperature in Mt. Fuji in winter?
The temperature is quite cold compared to Tokyo, the average temperature in December is 3 to 5 degrees Celsius at the highest, and it cools down to freezing point when it is the lowest. Of course there are snow, etc, so prepare thorough preparations such as thick jumpers, gloves, hats, goggles, boots etc. for when you fall by skiing or snowboarding.
Skiing is enjoyed at the ski resort 'Yeti', which is located on the second station of Mt. Fuji, also the earliest opened ski resort in winter.

Yeti last year was opened on October 21, but this time it will be a much earlier winter opening by updating the record of last year greatly. Approximately two weeks before the opening, we plan to make the facilities capable of making snow irrespective of the outside temperature 24 hours full operation, and on the day of October 6 that we will be open, we plan to make a 1 km long slope.
