Fujisan Can Wait

5 thoughts on “Fujisan Can Wait”

  1. I think you are right on this one. Having done this hike recently, I must say the huge amount of people doing the walk along with me drew any magical sensation away from materializing. Besides, one of the beautiful things about Mt Fuji (that which connects us with works from artists such as Hokusai) is actually being able to SEE Mt Fuji in the background. So I would say that probably there are other hikes around the My Fuji area that might be far better, more desolated and spiritual than the hike to Mt Fuji itself. I have done it once, but it’s not on my list of “to do again”. At least not for now 😉

    1. Thank you so much for reading 🙂 Yes I think what I’ve read about seeing Mt Fuji from a distance vs actually climbing its surface has also influenced me not going. I’m definitely interested in the other hikes you mention that are around the Mt Fuji area, thanks for the tip 🙂 Thanks as well for mentioning Hokusai, wow what a fascinating story his life was and the influence of his artwork is incredible. I’ve been thinking of writing a piece in connection with him 🙂
