From August 1st to 3rd, about 30 students with teachers headed from Kyoto to the Mount Fuji. Departure on August 1st night by bus to arrive at the 5th station around 9.00 am. After preparing hiking stuff and eating, they started their ascenssion around 10.30 am. Several hours later, they finally arrived at the 8th station to eat and rest for a while. When midnight strikes, it is time to go again until the last station and to get a view from the top with the sunrise.
After going back to the bus, everyone is heading to a Onsen with all you can eat buffet for some rest.
This event is really one of the most memorable you can have. Weather was good too and we are lucky to be able to go to the top everytime we plan it.
