Fuji-san Climbing Notes
Gizzy Ishikawa from JAPAN writes:
Went up the Fujinomiya trail Thursday 7/12/13. Trail is clear and well groomed.
I stayed at the top lodge Friday night. The accommodations at the top lodge were kinda sparse and cramped (about 40 people per room), like a pack of sardines in a can! I got a little altitude sickness staying so long at the top hut. Next time I will sleep at a lower hut to avoid spending so much time at the top.
Sunrise was ok, I missed being at the proper point for the best view.
On the way down I'm sure I passed 2,000 people climbing up and the trail was packed.
