Mount Fuji is the symbol of Japan and is one of the most beautiful sights in the world. The near perfect conical shape of the volcanic cone and the climb to the top is a journey that is sure to change your life. The climb can be started off during the latter part of the day, camping on the mountain and then continuing to catch the sunrise at the peak. The trip can be a little strenuous due to constant exposure to the sun but it's worth the effort once you reach the top. There are a lot of tourists as well as locals who climb the mountain and it is a journey that builds a sense of unity and is a unique experience. The ride back to Tokyo in the bullet train is also recommended.
