I've been Mt.Fuji with XYL on August 27 and 28.
It was tough form me.
On Aug. 27.
We arrived at Lev.5th where 2300m a.s.l. at 11:30 by bus and started to climb.

 At 16:30 we arrived at Lev.8th where 3100m a.s.l.

 Beautiful view from the Lev.8th.
 After short rest at the cottage "Taishikan"  at 23:30 we started to climb again for the summit.
At 04:20, finnaly we arrived the top of Mt Fuji where 3776m a.s.l. !!
 When arrived the summit was rain, but it was changed to sleet and getting windy,
So, just 30min stay at the summit, we started to climb down.

 During the long long down way, we could enjoy awesome view of mountain range "Minami apls" etc.
 Finally We arrived at Lev.5th at 9:30AM on Aug.28.
It was 2nd time in my life to climb up Mt Fuji.
The first time was when I joined the company at age of 23. We went there with some guys who joined the company at the same time and stay at the company's dormitory.
And this time with my wife Kyoko. For her it was the first time in her life.
It was tough for us. But it was a precious time for us too.
