Ascent Trip Report

Gotemba trail. Drove to trail head parking lot- lots of parking space available on a Saturday at 0545. Made ascent in 4:08, did the summit loop clockwise in 1:11 including a break to buy the famous Fuji hiking stick with woodburning designs and summit flag and a coke. Ran down in 1:31. Had a beautiful day for the climb. It really is just a steep hike, nothing technical at all. Amazing to see so many Japanese using little oxygen bottles along the route.
