I woke up this morning to the sound of heavy rain and wind. There was a Typhoon coming from the south, and the Mt. Fuji area was in it's path. Today was going to be a day of patience.

Mercifully, the bus home from Mount Fuji was air-conditioned and it wasn't long before the night's exertions caught up with us. Heads began to drop and before I knew it, everyone around me was snoring softly.
