Ohachimeguri Summit Trail Private Tour
Pilgrimage in the sky. Trek around the sacred summit crater of Mt. Fuji while fully enjoying the majestic panorama.
After reaching the summit, you may want to extend your time at the top of Mt. Fuji and continue to Ohachimeguri. The sacred route takes about 2 hours making a full circle in a clockwise direction around the huge crater at the summit. This is a pilgrimage route in a sacred area called Naiin.
There are eight peaks that circle the summit, so it is often called Hachiyo (eight petals) to symbolize the lotus flower, or the seat upon which the Buddha sits. For ancient pilgrimages, Ohachimeguri was the ultimate goal, and today, you can follow in their steps after the stunning and spiritual ascent.
Along this trekking route of Japan's highest place, enjoy the scenery of powerful volcanic landform and magnificent 360 degree panorama. It is also real pleasure to stand at the Kengamine Peak at 3,776 meters.
