Our tour went up the Yoshida Trail
Arrived at 8th Station, where dinner was prepared for us and everyone had cots to take a short nap before waking up for sunrise. It was raining so we were quite happy to finally arrive.
The dining area
Some people woke up around 2am to hike up another 1-1.5 hour to the very top (summit) to catch the sunrise while many stayed at 8th Station.
Climbers could get their rods stamped as a souvenir.
The descent is a challenge on its own as it’s steep and slippery. One tip we got was to walk in a zigzag pattern as if you were skiing or snowboarding down.
