Climbing Fuji in the summertime is not exactly a wilderness adventure. The trail is like a street, and in places there are huts at just about every corner. I've seen photos of summer weekends where there is just an endless queue of climbers ascending, and luckily it wasn't so busy today, but there were still plenty of people heading up.
Far from wild it may be, but it's still a decent challenge, and at the bottom of the trail looking up, the summit looked an awful lot further away than it had from the 5th station.
