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.

Other Indoor Activities

  • The Narusawa area’s roadside rest and shopping hub offers the visitor splendid views of Mount Fuji and much more. The shop in the main building sells freshly harvested local highland fruits and vegetables, as well as locally brewed sake and ready-to-eat condiments.

  • Viewing Mount Fuji on its own is splendid enough, but it is in relation to the surrounding mountains that one can begin to comprehend the sheer scale and size of Japan’s most iconic mountain. This observation deck offers that opportunity.

  • Aokigahara is a dense, primeval forest of mixed coniferous and broadleaf trees stretching across 30 square kilometers. The forest floor consists of volcanic rock, which is hardened lava that flowed from Mount Fuji when the volcano had a major eruption in the year 864.
