富士山ツアー

To the top of Japan and back again!

Top_20110808231851.jpg

Last weekend we held our first ever tour to the highest peak in Japan, Mt. Fuji the beautiful symmetrical stratovolcano that has long been a symbol of Japan.

After reaching Osaka we drove to the bottom of the 5th station of the Yoshida route, the most popular route, where we took a bus to the 5th station and the trailhead up. We started our adventure around 1500 when we slowly worked our way up to “Toyokan”, one of many mountain huts that dot the landscape and our place of short refuge before heading up to the top. We got there around 1800 where we were shown to our bunks and after a yummy dinner we got some “Shut Eye”.

Still groggy we packed up our stuff and headed out at around 12:30 in the morning using only our headlamps to guide us along the trail. You might ask us “Why would you start you hike in the middle of the night?”, well one of the most popular things to do on this mountain is to view the sunrise from its’ summit and that’s what we wanted to do too!

We weren’t the only people who wanted to do this, there we A LOT of other people with the same idea. Every once in a while we stopped to take a breather and when we looked back down toward the route we had just climbed there was a continuous line headlamps snaking their way up the trail.

We stopped just below the summit to kick back and get setup for the rising sun. The sun was greeted with many “Ooooohs and Ahhhhhs as it pierced the horizon and gave us a most beautiful sunrise.

After enjoying once of the most beautiful experiences you can have in Japan we continued up to the summit that was covered with “Omiyage” shops, and continued along the summit until we reached the Fuji summit Post Office where we mailed a postcard back to the shop and licked back to enjoy the view….and our breakfast!

After slowly making our way back down to the 5th station we hopped on the shuttle bus and headed back to the truck and our trip back to Fukuoka.
