Among the 4 climbing trails, on average it'll take about 5 hrs. 10 min. up and 2 hrs. 55 min. down. On the main Yoshida climbing course, if you're in good shape, from the 5th Station you should allow at least 5 hrs. up and about 3.5 hrs. down, as shown in the graphic below. You'll gain 1471 meters (4824 ft.), almost a vertical mile, which is comparable to climbing the 1250-ft-tall Empire State Building in New York City almost 4 times. Wow.
