... s so funny, she asked me to get Meenus fortune too next time I go to a temple. We met up with the guys and headed to the bullet train. It went so fast at first, it made me dizzy but it was fine after. I got a really nice picture of Mount Fuji, again, pictures don't do it justice.

Here we hopped on the bus which conveniently took us high up the side of the massive Mt Fuji to Fujinomiya Fifth station. We took a couple of aspirin en-route to help with the sudden altitude gain. Even at the Fifth station we were at 2400m above sea level, and high above a spectacular bed of clouds in the valley below. We started walking at 9.15am, a little ...
