- Date(s) climbed: 25-26 August 2002
The Ancient Road begins at Fujiyoshida and adds about 5000 feet to the climb through forest. The first four stations are along this route, long abandoned and fallen into disrepair. It's quiet, peaceful and not used much. Left 5th station (visitors center) for the top at 11pm to be at the summit for the sunrise.
