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 = JPY5200/person (return).
Started hiking at 10.00pm in the evening, with the world's most unprepared hiking gears.
Heard a caucasian talking "dude whats the point, we're going to die out there". We found that so funny.
After 7 hours of cold wind, altitude sickness, we reached the top just before sunrise. We reached the summit at 6.45 am.
Altitude sickness caught Diloz 6.45-8.45am, as we reached summit.
Temperature at 8th station to summit probably 0 celsius with strong winds.
Hardest part of the journey was going down. 3 hours of poor trails. Arrive back at shinjuku 3.00pm the next day.
Will be constantly updated. Coming soon videos of our journey. All praise to god for such a beautiful experiance.
