Mt. Fuji closed for season.
United States (東京都)
I went to the summit of Mt. Fuji on September 8th to September 10th. The trails close on September 10th. I think by notifying the prefecture police that one can climb after season, however there is no support, lodges, water or bathrooms, so it gets exponentially more difficult.
This is a perfect event to take a group. I had to take my ex wife and she waited in the car (haha) while I climbed to the top and back down (20 hours because my cat (yes, Neko) went along with me). I hope she wasn't bored!! Well, when I got back she had hidden on some nearby trails and taken the car keys ransom or something. It was drama.
I was thinking about hiking off season, but I should note, this requires a lot of logistics, climbing gear, endurance and strength.
Or I could wait until next season in 2017!about 7 years
