The 8th station Hakuun-So (Mountain Lodge)

Main content starts here.

In the old days, Hakuun-So(Mountain Lodge) was called Sengyo-Muro. Still now, the statue of Sengyo is worshiped at the household-altar of the mountain lodge as a god. Hakuun-So is located at 3,200 m above sea level at the 8th station of Mt.Fuji. The name of Hakuun-So(Hakuum means white clouds) came from the reason that the building stands above clouds. Lodging is the main service and advance reservation by phone call is required. There is no rest-station room service. The stand sells snack and drink. It sells also water, coffee, cocoa, bread, and simple mountain items. Branding for the pilgrim’s staff is available. The landlady says that she wants to host the guests carefully. Water supply is limited and bath is not available, because lodge is located in the specific environment of Mt.Fuji. Although the service for guests is limited, she wants to encourage the climbers, hoping climber's safety journey.
