In my previous story, I wrote that I won't be able to do all the things that I want to do. That doesn't take away the fact that there are a couple of activities that I believe I HAVE to do when I am in Japan. I can now scratch two of those from my list, since they took place in the last two weekends.
The first one is climbing Mount Fuji, the highest mountain of Japan. I've succeeded, and contrary to all expectations, I enjoyed it a lot! Almost everyone I spoke ...

Back to Tokyo tomorrow and we fly out on Wednesday, back in Canberra on Thursday, all being well.
One last post tomorrow.
