We took the Fujimiya-guchi route, departing the fifth stage parking lot at 3:30 a.m. arriving at the true summit (not the "tourist" summit - we went to the one with the weather station and the obelisk) at 9:30 a.m. and back to the car in 2 hrs. 45 minutes. We saw no other people until we returned to near the car. We had clear skies and heard that the first snows arrived about a week after our summit. Many thanks to Kazu-san and Miyagawa-san for accompanying us that day.
