Last weekend I joined a trip to climb Mount Fuji. We started our asscent at 17:00 and arrived at the summit at 1:30 - where we froze for a couple of hours waiting for the sun to rise. A drop of rum kept us warm as we watched the shooting stars. The huge numbers of people reminded me of Machu Picchu, although thats where the parallels between the two end. On Fuji, approx every 30 mins you will come across toilets, beds, shops and cafes, having a coffee every now & then kept us awake and our spirits up.
