Journeys in Japan – Reaching for the highest peak in Japan

15th of August 2006, It was the last month of summer. Having enjoyed the hanabi festival early in the month, me and my wife made plans to hike up to the summit of Mt Fuji, the tallest peak in Japan at 3,776m. We prepared ourselves by spending weekends hiking around Shimane and also hiking up to the top of Mt Daisen.

A friend from Tokyo also joined us for the journey and experience. Our aim was to hike at night and make it for sunrise which is a popular way to see the summit of Mt Fuji. There several routes going up to Mt Fuji, but we took the most popular and safest route called Fujinomiya route.

At the end of the day you may feel battered and exhausted, however you feel a great sense of accomplishment and it really stays with you, even up until now. I recommend the hike to anyone fit enough to do so, the sunrise is amazing.
