This is not your usual Fuji climb; take a contemplative walk through Japanese forests to ascend up Japan's highest peak at 3,776m to be embraced by one of Asia's enamoured Sunrises. In partnership with YMCA Tozanso, this inaugural adventure fundraiser is in support of Y Camp Challenge, a quarterly outdoor adventure camp for persons with special needs.

Mount Fuji's exceptionally symmetrical cone, is a well-known geographical, cultural and spiritual symbol of Japan, frequently depicted in art and photographs, as well as visited by sightseers and climbers.

Our base camp will be YMCA Tozanso, nestled at the foot of Mount Hakone, surrounded by lush green forest, and blessed with a stunning view of Mount Fuji. We will access the mountain via the 5th Station of Subashiri route at an altitude of 1,970m, accompanied by beautiful Japanese forests up to 2,700m.

Enjoy 'Zen-hiking' as we learn from and follow our local guides up to the summit!
