At the entrance of 5th level, 9:30 pm, 10th August (just before
starting to climb)

Nishioka san and me
Taking rest at 9.5 th level (just before the final step)
Sun is coming out (near the top)
Just reached the top: c3770 m (sun is almost out)
Cloud from top
Still ice around the top
Kimura san is coming to the top
Resting shades at the top (they sell cup noodle, soup, souvenirs, etc.)
The sun is getting stronger, difficult to take shot
The sun is just behind my head!
Resting at the top
Movie file (Avi)
Not prepared yet!
Flat space at the top
Jinja (temple) at the top
The volcanic mouth of Fuji is just behind us
Started to go down
Now I can see what I climbed at night
Taking my own picture
People climb along the guide rope
Trying to take with the background below!
Still ice in the middle of summer
For those who can read Japanese
Climbers insert coin into this pole!
Now you can see something green down there
Plants living 2500 m above sea level
Near 7th level (getting warmer)
