Mount Fuji

We were not lucky. The weather was bad on our way up to the mountain. But no matter how bad it was, every group of challengers were set to go. They said you can never predict the weather on the mountain. And you not going to quit the adventures after a long ride from the city.

They rain came and gone within a second, making the hike even nasty mixing sweat and rain. Each step became heavier with oxygen density in the opposite direction. The heavy fog also minimize our vision, unable to tell where we were.

It poured like hell, when we took a short stop at station no.7. Luckily just before we considered to postpone our departure, the rain stopped without any sign.

9p.m. A full 6 hours hike. The mission was to beat the sun. And to be honest, I was pretty impressed with myself :p. I'm still in a good shape despite having a life sitting in front of the computer most of the time.

Our hard work was paid with breath taking scenery on top of the mountain. The cloud was dense and we even doubted that we will miss the sunrise, but god did not disappointed us. It was spectacular.
