The most popular and ideal route is to climb in the afternoon, sleep in a refuge after dark, then finish the climb just before sunrise (around 4 am). To do this, you will need to reserve a place in one of the many shelters located between the 5th station and the summit.

The short night spent among many other budding climbers will cost you between 5,000 and 9,000 yen ($43/38€ - $78/69€), plus dinner and/or breakfast. Some shelters offer online reservations in English!
