Wait! Don't throw away garbage you might think it's OK to leave or throw away.

Don't you think you can throw away cigarette butts and food waste on the ground, do you? Absolutely NO ! Don't you think these paper and organic matter can be decomposed in a while, do you? There are 4 starting points called "Gogoume", "the 5th station" for climbing. Gotenba is the lowest but its altitude is 1440m. Even at the lowest point, temperatures are cool and organic matter won't be decomposed so that they remains as they are.

Waste as least as possible

When you prepare for climbing at home, please contrive ways not to produce wastes. For example, take out candies or snacks out of wrapper and put them in one container or a bag. Use your water bottle and a collapsible water bottle instead of single use plastic water bottles. Bring a trash bag you use.

A trash bag "Carry your litter home to keep Mt. Fuji Green" will be handed out to each climber at 3 fifth stations, Fujinomiya, Subashiri and Gotenba in Shizuoka prefecture area. Please use the bag to take trash with you while climbimg.

Your Mountain gear will turn to be wastes.

Don't you think you will bring a plastic rain coat or umbrella with you as rain gear, do you? In the mountain, heavy rain and strong wind will break your umbrella and tear your plastic raincoat. These broken umbrella and wet torn raincoat end up to be wastes. Bring good quality waterproof and wind resistant mountain gear and you won't produce wastes and save your life as well. There are many mountain gear rental shops and you can rental some and get some advice on what you wear and bring.

Shoes and hiking boots

You may walk at least 6 hours when you climb Mt.Fuji. If you wear shoes and hiking boots which you haven't used for a long time, please check your shoes condition. You have to walk on gravel and rocks above the 5th station. A rubber sole of long-time-no-use shoes has got deteriorated and will easily come off. Please make sure conditions of rubber parts of mountain gear will be OK before using.

You may accidentally leave trash on the trail.

You will climb to the summit, 3776m high. You have to walk in scorching sunlight during the day or walk in the dark at night to see sunrise at the top. You would be suffering from altitude sickness. When you get tired, sleepy or sick, you must decrease attention.

When you take a break and start walking again on the way, you may accidentally leave your groves, your water bottle and wrapper of snacks you ate behind you. These things will end up to be wastes. When you start walking after a break, make sure to leave nothing around you. If you have company, make sure to leave nothing with each other.
