Can I still hike Mt. Fuji even without hut reservation?

I would like to hike Mt Fuji, but so far I can’t get a hut bed comfirmation. Anyone knows if I don’t have any reservation. Can I still hike up and maybe stay at station 8.5 or 9 station for a few hours to be out of cold or wind? Thanks for imput

When are you climbing Fuji? If it's in the peak season such as mid August, the vast majority of the huts will be totally packed and won't be able to accommodate you. You really should book and get a confirmation.

In not so busy time, you can just stop by and get a shelter and food etc.
