Has anyone done this? I've been to Japan and seen Fuji on several occasions, but I have never climbed it! And apparently, legend says that if you go to Japan but don't climb Fuji you'll always find a reason to return to Japan. I'd say Japan holds a special place in my heart, and I think I would like to climb Fuji - but I'm curious to know how intense it is. I'm a fairly capable hiker, but I've never climbed a legitimate mountain before!
