Hoei Crater Trail

The Hoei Crater is over twice the size of the Mt. Fuji summit crater. You can hike right into the bottom of the crater as well as hike to the Summit of Mt. Hoei. The Hoei crater can be accessed from both the Fujinomiya and Gotenba routes and generally hiked thru out the year. The Hoei Crater shows the scars of the last Mt. Fuji eruption in 1707. It is generally a safe hike, however due to the open location of the side of the mountain the wind condition are some of the strongest winds on Mt. Fuji.
