Fuji-san Trip Report (#2204)

August, 2004 will be my second 'attempt' at Fuji. My first wasn't an attempt to climb it, only an attempt to see it. It was mid-May, 1986. We took a train into Gotemba from Tokyo, and looked for the bus to take us to the mountain. What we discovered was "Ahhhhh, basu Fuji-san (Mt. Fuji bus), only in Summer." So we took a cab. Totally fogged in. Walls of the stuff everywhere.
Now I have an opportunity to take a trip with 5 others to climb Fuji. I'll no doubt come back with a greater appreciation for the mountain than my first trip there.
