The story of two amateur hikers yet ambitious photographer trying to conquer Mt.Fuji. We set off at 7.00PM from Shinjuku station to Mt Fuji 5th Station,Kawaguchi-ko, Yamanashi Route,the most popular route. It took 2 hours by bus. Cost us JPY5200/person (return).


Started hiking at 10.00PM in the evening, with the world's most unprepared hiking gears. But we're so excited. Heard a caucasian talking "dude whats the point, we're going to die out there". We found that so funny. They were excited too, actually.

After 7 hours of cold wind, altitude sickness, we reached the top just before sunrise. Temperature at 8th station to summit probably 0 celsius with strong winds. We reached the summit at 6.45AM. Altitude sickness caught me around 7AM. It was really bad.

Hardest part of the journey was going down. 3 hours of poor trails. Arrive back at shinjuku 3.00PM the next day.

All praise to god for such a beautiful experiance.  Here's some footages of our exploration.
