    A traditional Japanese hotel with nice big rooms. Good view outside the balcony. Has its own hot spring in the basement. Good dinner in the hotel. A little remote.

    Traditional ryokan experience

    Nice ryokan in the Hankone Mountains. Be prepared to wear slippers during your visit and even a Yukata. The lobby bar, and the entire ryokan for that matter, was a bit dated, but they had karaoke and a good selection of drinks. The hot springs bath in the basement was pretty good, but they also had several massage chairs to use before or after your bath. That was enjoyable. The food was really good and there was a convenient store right next door that opened at 7am. Beds were futons that were prepared by the housekeeper each day.

    We left the hotel to drive up partway to Mt Fuji. No sooner than leaving Tokyo, we were caught up in a traffic jam for the next 30 minutes. It was rather foggy when we got to around the mountain. We were lucky to be able to see the mountain some of the time. We had a French bistro kind of lunch in a small café. We pretty much occupied the entire …

    ... pass quickly. We were glad we had brought our supplies with us: a 500ml bottle of water cost $5.5 up there! As we reached the upper slopes we were forced to slow down; all of us were noticing the thinner air.

    But our pace was good and at about 1:45 we reached the crater rim. From there it was 30 minutes around to the actual summit on the far side of the crater. We were in a cloud sandwich: cloudy skies above, and a valley filled ...

    ... got to work that night :)

    Unfortunately I was not able to make an pictures climbing up, it was just to dark. But it looked incredible, to see the clouds beneath you with the moon reflecting on it.The mountain just a shadow on each side of you, reminding you how steep it actually is.

    There are a few platform's on the way to the top, to rest. However none of them have shelters, meaning you are the whole night exposed to ...

    ... held out for us and although it was really cloudy, it was at least dry until we descended. Soon after we got back to the Fifth Station the rain started and the weather deteriorated, so all-in-all we were pleased to have done it when we did. However, Mount Fuji will not go down as one of my favourite walks! A few people had said that Mount Fuji was better from afar and I think they are right, but due to the cloud, we never saw Mount Fuji from afar!

    8 km walk from walk Magemo to Tsumago.

    The guide book and the tourist information centre told me that it would take 3hours to walk it.
    However I only had 2, as I got up way to late to actually do this walk. What can I say i did it in 1 1/2 hours :)

    Rock'n Roll!!!! found the coolest little coffee shop in Tsumago.
