Well Done!
Wow! Well done indeed my friend! What an epic journey and achievement for you! You scaled Mt Fuji overnight, after climbing Mt Hoei the day before. And you were then able to find energy to travel to Osaka and enjoy an evening out there! I'm sure there are not many who'd be able to do all of that. We'll done indeed!

A tori...better than a humble cairn any day.

Coming of light...always better when it is achieved from hardship. Well done Per-Olof. You have conquered Mt Fuji. Memories for the trophy room for sure!

Bullet Climb
I, too, did a bullet climb back in 2010. Unfortunately, I wasn’t rewarded with a good sunrise as there were too many clouds; I hope you had better luck. I’m impressed you bagged two peaks in one go.

Cliff Hanger!
My goodness, what a cliff-hanger you have left the reader with - will he, won't he make it...?! I'm sure you did, but I look forward to reading about it in your next anyway. Lovely to read about the purchase of your goshuincho, and well done on making the climb so far on such little rest and with a heavy backpack! I remember seeing lights at night going up the summit of Mt Fuji from Kawaguchiko - I thought initially that the trail may be lit by lamps, but then I realised it was the headlamps of the climbers! What an experience, and I understand it must indeed be a spiritual journey for those undertaking it.

Cliff Hanger!
Thank you my friend, I'm glad that you like it! It was a very special feeling, quite unlike anything I've ever done or experienced before. Highly recommended!

Special place to cleanse the body and spirit to prepare for the climb. Very special.

It was a good feeling to clean both my body and my mind here before the climb. You are right that it's very special.

My Benefactors at the Old 7th Station

Climbing Mt Fuji
It is often the people one meets that define an adventure. To present this blog with your usual detail provides an insight into yourself that is not lost on this dancer Per-Olof. Many lovely pics of you with Takae. Then this one with your benefactors that helped your spirit soar as dark set in and ensured you were not left and lonesome as you continued your climb in darkness. I can picture you and others melding into cracks on the side of Fuji to hide from the cold...determination to continue your quest for sunrise providing your focus to endure. Great stuff Per-Olof...may your dreams come true.

Climbing Mt Fuji
Thank you my dancing friend! Indeed, the kindness and aid of those around me whose paths I would sometimes cross really helped me continue towards the top and my goal of goraiko!

Wow!
Per-Olof I'm extremely impressed. And how lovely that you got to do this with Takae for most of the way :)

Wow!
Thank you very much! It was really good to get to spend some quality time together, I just wish that we would have had more time!
