A 4-day trip which includes free time in Tokyo and a stay at the New Sanno Hotel. The fee for the trip is $150 plus the hotel charge, which varies according to rank/grade. The hike is strenuous for those not in peak condition, and children under 10 are not allowed. But for those who accept the challenge, this is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Three trips per year are conducted in July and August.
