Japanese have an endearing affection with mountains. In fact, anything that involves mountain climbing can quickly brighten their mood. No matter the size of the mountain (big or small), you’ll surely get a positive reaction when such a topic gets in the conversation. They even have a Mountain day (Yama no Hi), which is celebrated annually on the 11th of August. If that isn’t a testament of how much they love and adore their mountains then I don’t what is.
I love mountain climbing myself. As a matter of fact, I have climbed Mt Fuji in 2017. It was a surreal and otherworldly experience. The trek going up the peak is a laborious one, but once you get in there, the view of the sunrise at the summit will definitely take your breath away. That’s why I highly recommend you go on hiking at least once in your lifetime. Nonetheless, I’m pretty sure once you get to partake in it you’ll never going to stop. It’s addicting, albeit a healthy one.
