Solar Eclipse Fuji Hike_5224

On the 21st July 2009, 5 brave souls set foot on Japan's legendary Mt. Fuji. Battling through atrocious weather, they reached the top at 4.30am on Wednesday 22st July - and 6 hours later witnessed the solar eclipse from the summit - an event that they live-streamed over the internet so that the world could take part. See for the whole story, and video footage taken during the challenge.
