I’m dead. Mt Fuji murdered me. But it was a beautiful perishing in a “sacred place and source of artistic inspiration”; weightless Seared into my memory. The sensation of gliding above clouds and the sleep walking all night pilgrimage to the 3776 meter summit for sunrise struck me in my deepest heart. The beauty of this planet and this experience humbled and startled me in my own weakness and strength. I’d recommend climbing it if you get the chance.

I will post a lengthier description later of what the trek is like and how to prepare for it for those who are interested.
