I told myself that I would post these pictures before the year is over. A very quick recap of my August JET excursion to Mt. Fuji.
Five-hour bus ride from Toyama to Base Five of Mt. Fuji.
Two-hour wait at Base Five.
Ten-hour hike (because of the supercold!) through the night with about 4,000 other people because it was Obon.
One other-worldly sunrise.
Four-hour hike down.
One extremely tiring bus and train ride home. We all said we were glad that we did it, but never again.
Consumed: about five Snickers bars, four peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, three matcha Kit Kat bars, and one very expensive cup of noodles at Base Eight.
