Best Hut around 8th Station - Mt Fuji

Hi All,

My Husband and I will be climbibng Mt Fuji early August. I have read that it is best to pre-book a hut on the trail, but I have no idea which one to choose - can anyone give me advice on the best huts? So far I have found the following: Goraiko-kan, Hon-Hachigome Tomoe-kan, Fujisan Hotel, Ganso-muro, Hakuun-so.

Thank you so much for your help!

On the Yoshida trail, Goraiko-kan is the closest hut to the summit, so if you pick it you will have a shorter distance to climb in the morning. It is actually located at station 8.5. This will make a difference especially if you are climbing during a busy period (holidays, weekends), which sounds like you are. The trail gets very congested at the top before the sunrise. You can book it on their website and prepay via PayPal.
