Q1 Is the Subaru Line different from the Sky Line?     

A
The Fuji Subaru Line is a toll road from the mountain foot of Yamanashi Prefecture (north side of Mt. Fuji) to the 5th Station (Yoshida Entrance).
The Fujisan Sky Line is a toll-free road from the mountain foot of Shizuoka Prefecture (south side of Mt. Fuji, Fujinomiya City) to the 5th Station (Fujinomiya Entrance).

In addition, in Shizuoka Prefecture there are two other routes to the summit of Mt. Fuji. One is from the east side of Mt. Fuji (Oyama Town) to the 5th Station (Subashiri Entrance) via the Fujiazami Line (toll free). Another is from the southeast side of Mt. Fuji (Gotemba City) to the New 5th Station.

* The four 5th stations of each trail are located in different places at different altitudes.

Q2 When is the Fuji Subaru Line open?

A
The Fuji Subaru Line is open throughout the year. It does not have regular closing days. However, the gates are closed after operating hours and the road is not available.
Please note that available section of the road may change depending on the day due to snowfall and frozen road surface conditions in winter.


Q3 Is the Fuji Subaru Line available to the 5th Station on xx (month) xx (day)?     

A
This question is very often asked.
You cannot drive after operating hours and during the period of time of Private Vehicle Restriction. In addition, the road may be closed due to weather and road conditions.
Until it snows, the road is always open except for quite special circumstances, such as an approaching typhoon. We can make normally make clear responses about conditions within 1-2 days of receiving your question. However, conditions several days after the time of receipt of your inquiry are not predictable, and a definite response is not possible.

* For the road conditions of the Fuji Subaru Line, please refer to this chart.

Q4 How many cars can be parked in the 5th Station Parking? How much is the parking fee?

A
At the 5th Station, Daiichi (the 1st) Parking, Daini (the 2nd) Parking, and Sakashita Bus Parking have 330 standard-sized car parking spaces and 40 bus parking spaces. In addition, there are several parking areas along the road.
All parking areas at the 5th Station (along the Subaru Line) are free of charge. You cannot reserve a parking space.

Q5 I’d like to see the sunrise…

A
On the Shizuoka Prefecture side, you can see the sunrise from the upper area of the 8th Station of Fujinomiya Entrance and Gotemba Entrance as well as from the upper area of the 5th Station of Subashiri Entrance.
On the Yamanashi Prefecture side, though it depends on the season, you can usually see the sunrise from the upper area of the 5th Station. It is related to the direction of the sun rising; if it is difficult to see, walk (for about 40 minutes) to the 6th Station, where the possibility of seeing the sunrise is very high.
If you are in a place clearly commanding a view of Lake Yamanakako below your eyes, you can perhaps see the sun rising over Lake Yamanakako.

* For the time you can see the sunrise at the 5th Station, please see this.

Q6 Is the road sometimes closed due to restrictions and other reasons?

A
Private passenger vehicles excluding specific vehicles such as busses and taxis cannot drive the road during the period of time of Private Vehicle Restriction.
In addition, the road is closed (for half a day during the event) when the Mt. Fuji Hill Climb (bike race to Mt. Fuji 5th Station) takes place in early June.

Q7 I’d like to learn about details of the Private Vehicle Restriction.

Q8 What are the important points in using the Fuji Suaru Line?

A
The area around Mt. Fuji is designated as a “special area” under the the Natural Park Act as Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park. In particular, the area from the 5th Station to the summit is designated a “special protection area” and controlled under tight regulations for protection of nature.
Inside the designated area, “Taking flora and fauna,” “Taking out lava and stones,” and “Setting up tents and building fires” are strictly prohibited by the law. Please keep in mind obeying the law.
Also, Yamanashi Prefecture and Shizuoka Prefecture have established “Fujisan Kensho” (Mt. Fuji Charter) and Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park Fujisan Chiiki Kankyo Hozen Taisaku Kyogikai (Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park Mt. Fuji Environment and Security Council), and consisting of related administrative organs has established “Fujisan Country Code” (Mt. Fuji Country Code).
