Three weeks ago we went on a 3 day trip to Fuji Mountain.

We had a government provided discount for the hotel and $60 voucher to spend on souvenirs and convenience store food. At the hotel there was a torture course.


On the first day we went for a lite walk through the woods. Before the walk, we started at a shrine.

In the woods, we met an elderly local woman who was collecting chestnuts, mushrooms, and pretty red berries. She handed me a berries which smelled great and caused me to gain lots of energy. But two hours later my hands swelled up.

After that walk we drove to a scenic “Diamond Fuji” spot.

That night we had local “flat” noodles and karage chicken.


Next day we went to Fuji mountain and we hiked around the tree line.

On the third day, we went on a 4 hours hike were we visited some caves. The forests around Fuji are redwood-like, but on volcanic soil ground. It was quite beautiful.

Just BTW, day before we went, we had a BBQ.
