So everything has passed. And I am back home. tomorrow I should be getting over the jetlag from the journay between the two countries. And I want to wrap up a few things for everyone who has been following my trip.
Mt. Fugi was breathtaking. On our second day there, when the morning broke, the day after hiking from the train station, through the entrance shrine and up to the first station. The sky was a clear blue, and not a cloud in the sky. The onsens were hot and the meals were delicious. I even spotted a cogri on the hike back from the mountain.
The trail seemed to go on forever. I kept telling myself, I just need to make it past this next bend then I'll be at the rest area. And I'd turn the bend and then there was just more road. Luckily we prayed for a safe journey through the mountain and were blessed with everyone returning in one piece.
So now it's back to where it all began, Tokyo. There were just so many options and sights to see, i wish i could have had a couple more days. returning to the hotel we realized we could still see Mt. Fuji in the distance, it was amazing.
AND my jacket was waiting for me at the front desk. I opened it up and checked both pockets, but nothing was in them, I don't feel bad about it, at lest I got my jacket back.
After a quick rest, a small group of us headed out into Tokyo, going to Akihabara, Shinjuku and harijuku. Outside the park were the goth kids and street performers, along with a group giving out free hugs, one could always go for a free hug.
That night was our final dinner and my last night in Japan. Those I have talked to already know the story of what made that night so amazing for me. I did NOT want to return home afterwards. All I will tell you here is that now returning is not just an option, it's a necessity.
I hope everyone enjoyed following my trip as much as I enjoyed being on it.
