Geocache Description:

Mount Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan. Elevation 3776.24m, an active stratovolcano.
The area of Mount Fuji higher than the 8th station is the compound of "Sengen-taisha Shrine"
(Except for the climbing trails and Mount Fuji Weather Station).
But don't worry, the object of worship is not inviolable, and climbing to the mountain is regarded
as scared ceremony (better if you trash out).

To climb to Mount Fuji summit, summer season is recommended.
The cache owner strongly recommend to climb up in usual season, July to August.
Plan your schedule and equipment depending to your experience and stamina.
Please DO NOT forth through climbing when typhoon are coming or wind is expected to be strong.
During the season, many mountain huts are open and helpful for supplying water, foods, etc.
(the price is expensive, however).

Will be more helpful >>> GC2D413 [Mount Fuji Summit Earthcache]
And, you can use the mobile phone (NTT Docomo , SoftBank), from 5th station to summit. (07/2012)

Cache is hidden in obsoleted weather station. If necessary, Please look at the pictures spoiler.
The difficulty is for climbing up to the top, you don't have to step into danger area.

Please take one certification of climbing to Mount Fuji by the cache owner.
In order to fill in the log book, please make sure to bring a pen.
I hope that you can climb to Mt Fuji summit safely. Good luck and Happy Hunting!!

≪ Japanese ≫
富士山は美しい独立峰で標高 3776.24m、日本の最高峰です。 つい忘れがちですが富士山は活火山です。
山の八合目より上は 【富士山本宮浅間大社】 (ふじさんほんぐうせんげんたいしゃ) の境内ということになっています。

また NTT Docomo , SoftBank の携帯電話が、5合目からほぼ山頂まで使用することが可能です。(2012/07現在)

キャッシュは旧富士山測候所に隠されています。 日本最高峰・剣が峰の2等三角点(3775.63m)から5m以内で、
シーズン中のキャッシュポイントは、多くのマグルが予想されます。 また難易度は登山に関する内容が殆んどで、
スポイラー写真を見れば直ぐに見つかると思います。 キャッシュの取り出しや戻す際には、周囲に十分注意して下さい。

山頂に到達することができたジオキャッシャー皆さんの栄誉を讃え、GC流の 【登山証明書】 を何枚か入れてあります。
よろしければ記念にお持ち帰りください。 (※証明書の数には限りがあります)
