What Should You Do around Mt.Fuji??

Firstly, you can enjoy climbing to the summit in season from 1st July to 31st August. The view of sunrise there will be much more radiant. Out of season, it is allowed to get halfway up Mt.Fuji to 5th Station. Moreover, walking around Fuji Five Lakes and taking pictures at the foot of the mountain should be top priority.
