Climb is such a funny word as it is not a technical mountain. It is a trek. I can highly recommend doing the trip either side of the 'climbing' season of July/August unless you want to share the hill.... more »
日本最高峰の剣ケ峰からの御来光が人気です。富士宮ルートからが近いので富士宮ルートがおすすめ。9合目の山小屋に泊まって、2時頃山小屋を出て 列にしたがってゆっくり登り4時半には剣ケ峰に到着、御来光は4:50でした。 more »Come light from the highest peak kenke peak in Japan is popular. The Fujinomiya route is recommended because it is close to the Fujinomiya route. I stayed in the 9th mountain hut, went out of the lodge around 2 o'clock, climbed slowly according to the line, arrived at Kenke peak at half past four thirty, and the comelight was 4:50.
The topmost point in Japan! Feels awesome to be here. Just look around and you’ll see everything else is below you (other than the weather station built there, of course). Enjoy the moment in time when you are among the handful people standing at the highest peak in Japan. It’s crowded by the way. If you want to take a photo at the pillar which reads “highest point in Japan 3776m” then you need to stand in a long line. I suggest to avoid it cause the line in long and you can still enjoy the moment and take other photos standing at the peak.
The climb is going to be really tough. Especially if you try climbing during the night like I did. However I can say for sure that the sunrise you'll experience here will stay with you for the rest of your life.
