Do you mean to the 5th Station or do you mean to the top?

Anything above 5th Station is closed until early July, you are not going to find a guide. People die when they try to climb Mt. Fuji off-season.

For the 5th Station you should be able to get there by bus.

Climbing Fuji-san out out of season is an stupid thing to do. Simple as that.
April is out of season - there will be another newspaper article about another death. The mountain kills many people each year.

Hi!
If you're really eager to climb during off season, all you have to do is search for a guide that will take you there. Its not advisable to do it, however you can still find risk takers and hard core guides that will do it for you. Those guides are usually people who have had experience climbing monstrous mountain, such as the seven summits and obviously they will be quite expensive. I myself found them however didn't end up going due to conflict of available dates.

Cheers!
