MT. Fuji

There are three recommended sites for MT. Fuji as follows. First of all, if you want to climb to the summit of Mt. Fuji in the summer, please refer to the official website first. Next, for general tourism, I recommend the second site. It is the official site of Yamanashi Prefecture on the north side of Mt. Fuji. I think that Mt. Fuji is the most beautiful in the north now. Indeed, many tourists go to the north side area such as Lake Kawaguchiko. If you approach Mt. Fuji from the south, please refer to the official website of Shizuoka Prefecture, which I listed third below.
>> For Mt.Fuji climbing, please refer to this site
>> For information on the northern side of Mt.Fuji please visit this site
>> For information on the south side of Mt.Fuji please visit this site
