      I arrived at the 5th station for my first climb up the mountain around 8:00 PM. It was dark, cold, and the stores were all closed (minus the souvenir store that had an unclean bathroom you need to pay to enter). There’s no illumination at night either, so be careful of where you are stepping when heading to the mountain trail–as there’s horse stalls nearby. During the day, the station’s so packed you’ll have a hard time finding some place to sit.

      May on a clear day there might be better views from Mount Fuji 5th Station, but you don’t really obtain a very good view of Mount Fuji while half way up it. You need to Mount Fuji from some distance to see it with great perspective. There are some interesting sites around the Mount Fuji 5th Station.
