... WW1 and WW2. There were a LOT of steps. But when I finally got to the top, I was rewarded with one of the most iconic views of Japan, Chureito Pagoda with Mt. Fuji in the distance. Sure, it may look even nicer when the cherry blossoms are in bloom, but it was pretty amazing. I took way too many pictures. hehe. I also hiked further up the mountain to check out views of lilies and Mt. Fuji but they were not really in season and the angles ...

Often lean, strong wrestlers would best the heavy ones; we’re hoping to catch a professional match later on to see how different it is!

... sardine tin, so we struggled to sleep well at all. No water supply there. Dinner was served at 4pm then made to go to bunk beds to make space for people arriving later to have their dinner. Tried to go to sleep around 6:30pm. Wake up call was at 2am to hike the rest of the way to the summit for sunrise.
