Fujiten closes for the season on October 10th.
A few of us decided to make the trip this upcoming Sunday.
If you want to join in - please let me know.

Fujiten has bike rentals - however I have never rented, so I don't know the quality/style/availability of bikes.
A lift ticket is 4000Y.

If you want a general idea of riding in rain at fujiten....

For anyone having never ridden Fujiten... you can do it all on a rigid and have fun. Front suspension is better..

Full suspension just changes your available lines.

it is a blast. The trails' difficulty comes down to the rider's willingness to hit it fast.

The video I posted was from a buddy's gopro (I am the rider in red).

We were just goofing off and having fun since it had rained for days leading up to the ride.
We just wanted to have a good time.
By the end of the day - all four of us crashed.... but 3 were admitted rider error.
no one got hurt....

Fun times and you can join!

It is totally different than Fujimi Panorama.
The runs are much shorter, maybe 30% in length and the surface is a bajillion times smoother. No worries about your teeth falling out at Fujiten.
Fujiten is much more forgiving as well.

In my mind... Fujiten is a park to work on skills and just messing around having fun.
Fujimi Panorama is more to challenge yourself and your bike.

The easiest trail at FP is harder than the black diamond at Fujiten from a technical standpoint.
