Here is day 3 and 4.

The 3rd day was horrible. The temperature droped by 10 degrees. It also rained very often. But i still climbed Mt. Fuji. I hoped that above the clouds the rain would stop but i was so wrong.

This was the weather for the next days >_<


I took so much with me. But i forgot one of the most important things. A flashlight.


This is the closest a train can bring you to the mountain.Itīs 800m above the sealevel.


The closest a bus can bring you to the top.
I am already 2300m above the sealevel.


On my way to the top.




95% of all the buildings have been closed when i climbed.
[IMG]http://i1.************/8f5lf8k.jpg[/IMG]

I was above the cloud but it rained because there was a second layer of clouds above me.
[IMG]http://i19.************/7wubm0p.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i19.************/8an8axh.jpg[/IMG]

I found a place to sleep 3300m above the sealevel.
[IMG]http://i1.************/730du75.jpg[/IMG]

The thin air was not such a problem. But i still couldn`t sleep.
[IMG]http://i17.************/72fy4j9.jpg[/IMG]

I took some long exposure pics there.
[IMG]http://i10.************/80wc7q1.jpg[/IMG]

It`s not sun. That ladies and gentleman is Tokyo seen at night from Mt. Fuji. Too bad the view wasn`t clear enough.
[IMG]http://i5.************/6u8ntdv.jpg[/IMG]

I don`t have any pics from the top. The view was just 5m. It rained and it was windy and it was cold but not cold enough for snow. >_<
I had to wait for 3 hours at the 5th station. This i where i was sitting waiting for my bus. The seat is not dirty,is just the water from my clothes. >_<
[IMG]http://i16.************/73dn5kx.jpg[/IMG]

Pics i have taken in the train on my way back to Tokyo.
[IMG]http://i14.************/6xuwepk.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i15.************/8bxwck3.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i16.************/6x8j4hu.jpg[/IMG]

I took the following pics only from hand, no tripod.

In the evening i met Vapour. Our meeting point was the Tokyo International Forum.
[IMG]http://i13.************/835i7n5.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i15.************/8f1twfl.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i11.************/6jasry9.jpg[/IMG]

A small exhibition.
[IMG]http://i12.************/821fpcy.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i2.************/7x12jpg.jpg[/IMG]

I and Vapour have been eating in an South Korean restaurant. The food was very delicious.
This is Vapour.
[IMG]http://i12.************/87mg6td.jpg[/IMG]

We visited Shimbashi.
That light remind me a little bit on the movie war of the worlds.
[IMG]http://i1.************/6xlp0n4.jpg[/IMG]

On the top of teh skyscrapers are nice restaurants that i can`t afford. But i asked friendly if i could take some pics and they allowed it to me.

No it`s a wall to protect the people from landslides, falling rocks and Lawinen

Thanks


The next day was a only Tokyo day.

Shinbashi














A Mamiya :droll:






I took the train that runs through the new island. I recommend every visitor in Tokyo to do the same.






















In the evening i visited Roppongi Hills.

INCREDIBLE!

You know, I've been dying to go to Tokyo for the past 5 years.
...and you've been there twice now!!

I'm disgustingly jealous now
lol just kidding.

I'm going for sure someday, maybe even try and live there if I can learn some Japanese.
