Mount Fuji

After lunch, we headed to the 5th station of Mount Fuji. This is the end of the line for vehicles. 

Mount Fuji is 3,776.24 Meters tall. We did not hike up this time, but we are in training to officially climb it before we come home to the States in 2015.

Here is Dave standing beneath the Tori to the shrine at 5th station.

A view of Fuji.

Horsies for pony rides up the trail.

View down into the valley.

A wall of omiyagi (souvenirs) charms.

The shrine.

Last, but not least, Hello Kitty made of solid rock.

The gift stores were full of tourist crap/souvenirs, but we found some pretty nice postcards.
