    MOUNT FUJI

    Mount Fuji, affectionately called 'Fuji-san' by the Japanese, has been revered since ancient times. Throughout the centuries Japanese poets have written about it, painters have painted it, pilgrims have flocked to it, and more than a few people have died on it. Without a doubt, this mountain has been photographed more than anything else in Japan.
    Mount Fuji is stunningly impressive. At 12,388 feet, it towers far above anything else around it, a cone of almost perfectly symmetrical proportions. Mt. Fuji is majestic, grand, and awe-inspiring. To the Japanese it symbolizes the very spirit of their country. Though it's visible on clear days from as far as 100 miles away, Fuji-san is, unfortunately, almost always cloaked in clouds. If you catch a glimpse of this mighty mountain (which you can sometimes do from the bullet train between Tokyo and Nagoya), consider yourself extremely lucky. One of the best spots for views of Mount Fuji is Hakone.
    I was lucky that on the day we went to Mount Fuji, the weather was very nice, the sky was clear so we can see Mount Fuji very clearly. Our tour guide said we were very lucky because normally we can't see Mount Fuji in the early April as it was hidden behind the clouds!

    Fujisan

    Our first halt was in Numazu, a small town near Tokyo! And there I saw Fujisan! The dormitory where rest of our group was staying, Fujisan, Mount Fuji, is right in front but visible only when he is in clear mood! Generally he prefers to remain hidden behind clouds! Well, he is moody indeed!!!
    Fuji could be a challenge for trekkers! It takes 6hrs for a seasoned trekker to climb Fuji from the fifth level onwards provided that it is not a rainy or windy day!
    By bus you can go upto the 8th level, which is not very high!!! At the 8th level, you can try your hand at playing Taiko..the Japanese drums!!!
    But to visit the crator, one has to go trekking....

    I visited Mount Fuji during the month of August. The trip was organized by Saitama University. On the first day we hiked to the base camp where we stayed overnight. The following morning we got up at 4 am, climbed to the top and arrived before sunrise at Mount Fuji.

    While going for Mt. Fuji, you could enjoy the hot spring bath together with a wonderful shopping tour at Gotemba Premium Outlet.

    Address: Yamanashi-ken / Shizuoka-ken

    Directions: Take the Hakone Highway bus fr Shinjuku to JR Gotemba and from there take the bus to a nearby hot spring (onsen). You could then shop around the over 100 stores in the Gotemba Premium Outlet (where there is free shuttle connecting from JR Gotemba stn).
