We are on a mission

Fuji Guides
In 2013, Richard (our head guide and company founder) published Climbing Mt. Fuji "A Complete Guidebook" This guidebook is dedicated to help future Mt. Fuji Climbers in planning and preparing a successful Mt. Fuji climb and provide climbers with useful and possibly lifesaving information. The guidebook provides that trustworthy reference, because an official Mt. Fuji Guide who has years of climbing experience and every imaginable type of Mt. Fuji climb under his belt wrote it. Richard also appeared on a television segment called, Japan's 100 Most Famous Mountains as a professional English speaking Guide on Japan's national Broadcasting Channel (NHK).

Working with Local Partners is key

Our goal as a Mt. Fuji climbing specialist is not only to provide safe climbing adventures but also to introduce clients to authentic Japanese experiences. We focus on creating and maintaining wholesome relationships with local partners such as mountain hut owners/workers, local hot springs, traditional hotels etc. With such ties, any tour run by My Tokyo Guide Inc., will give you a truly authentic Japanese experience.

Social Conscience is a key factor

Mt.Fuji Guides

The people that work on Mt. Fuji during the climbing season are a tight community: the mountain hut owners, mountain hut staff, tour operators, safety center staff and Mt. Fuji guides all know each other in some capacity. Having a local professional guide, guide you to the summit of Mt. Fuji is your best opportunity to succeed. As professional Guides, it is our privilege to share our experience and knowledge of climbing techniques (along with our professional advice) with those who have set their hearts on climbing this majestic mountain.
