As a general rule of thumb, staying at one of the mountain huts costs between ¥5,000-8,000 and a hot meal is about ¥1,000 extra. Although the lodges may take guests if they have spare room, you should book well in advance. The weekends in July and August, as well as during o-bon in mid-August, see the most climbers, and it is by no means guaranteed that spaces will be available if you just show up unannounced. The lodges do have some information available in English on their websites, but they they don’t differ from each other all that much. Reservations need to be made over the telephone, although a few lodges do have online booking forms. See here for a complete guide to climbing Mount Fuji.
