Mt. Fuji is being a nasional symbol of a Japanese. The highest mountain in Japan; 3,776m. They are proud of the Mt. Fuji. If you are having a close look, its like a shape of a lady's skirt. Fantastic! There is a history behind this Mt. Fuji. How this 10-station being located and being mark and the story of a mother and a son. Hopefully you can get a Japanese to tell you this. I got up till the 5th station by coach and it was a summer. Further up, you have to climb up yourself and it takes another 6-8 hours to reach the peak. Japanese believe, they need to climb up to the peak at least once before they leave the world. They is another story behind this.
Overrall, is a very fantastic journey and is one of the wonder in Japan.
