help! anyone speaking japanese?

Hi there! I REALLY need someone to help me book a bed in one of mt fuji's huts..

I know there is a website where you can pay a small amount to have them do it for you, but unfortunately the day i chose isn't avaiable - BUT looking in some of the huts' websites i found out that THERE ARE still some places..I thought I could book the bed by myself - the thing is, using google translate it's quite useless, and I have serious problems to get what I'm supposed to do here http://www.mfi.or.jp/tomoekan/yoyaku.html

If any of you could help me, I'd be reallyreally grateful!

Are you gonna climb Yoshida Trail? There are a number of other huts 6th to 8th . City of Yoshida is likely to give up to work with international climbers: try to pursue City's recommendation in the middle of the page with flushing NEW.

You can also click on hut names to check if they have English. So far, the following huts may accept English solicitation, but hopefully not Italian language.

Seikan-so on 6th

Hinodekan

GORAIKO-KAN

One other ideas as Bibimbob recommends is just trying to send your Fax message if you can locate a fax number. It may not be a matter if you can write in Japanese language, but some of them only have telephone number! You may add your e-mail address.

Another way is the guided tours:

Worst of all, send me your e-mail message in this account.

I've already tried to book it using fujimountainguides website, but it just doesn't show any availability for the night I need - while on the huts' websites it seems like there is! I'll try sending the fax, the biggest problem is: what I'm supposed to write where it says name in kanji/kana? For the address/post code can I use the ones of my hotel? And what about the phone number?

Thank you both sooo much for helping me!

While I can call up and ask instead of you, I will personally save this as a last resort for someone in serious trouble and when immediate help is needed.

I can't give preferential treatment for hundreds or perhaps thousands of people who are only trying to find a place in mountain hut without sending a fax inquiry first. I assume that most people would just open up the individual homepages of the mountain huts (links are given on that page) and find numbers next to "FAX" (using Google translate won't be necessary for finding "FAX" and numbers). Send a fax inquiry to your desired accommodation, noting your full name, number of persons, checking-in/out dates, no. of nights to make sure, your permanent address and reply home fax no. or e-mail address. Don't worry about Kanji or Kana issue.

Tomoe-kan's FAX number: 0555‐73‐1792

Japan's Country code is +81

==

(International call service provider no. or exit code in Italy which seems to be 00) + 81-555-73-1792 [*omit zero before 555]. Good luck !
