For the emperors birthday Greg and I took a manly hike up to Raizan. The weather was perfect and sunny but not too hot. The hike up went well and we made good time but for the hike down we took the route just after Fujiyama. The route has many ropes and requires a lot of stamina. Streams kept connecting to other streams as the mountain stream slowly transformed into a river. We past many waterfalls, rocks, drops and gorges. It was fantastically beautiful. At the bottom of mountain we started to run to get the bus. We arrived just in time with only seconds to spare!
