An overnight hike up Mt. Fuji
, Japan. I believe it was my fifth try since four other trips were cancelled by overbooking, typhoon, and etc.
I guess you don't get to see too much sun rises from top most part of Japan. But I did it!! Yeah... in 2002. Many people got AMS
but I was busy gulping down a corn soup. They don't boil up to 100 degrees on top, so I had a luke warm soup for the first time in my life. But, it was yummy.
covered two symbols of Japan- sun and Mt. Fuji
Taken in July 2002
* I used this as a reference for my manga page
I really want to put this photo into drawing since I wanted to remember this moment when I finally reached the top of Mt. Fuji just when the sun came up from the horizon.
I would like to thank
for featuring this in Huge Photography Feature
