Mount Fuji Trekking (3)

The journey continues ... The group descended from Station 8 of Mount Fuji (mission aborted due to bad weather) amid rain and strong wind on Thursday, 29 July 2010. Then we took bus transport to Gotemba area and put up a night there en route to Tokyo the following day.


At Factory Outlet of Gotemba; it was a day of rain and strong wind
