Though it is dated as February, I climbed up this mountain on the very next day I did Mt. Jiri. It did ache on my two thighs as well as my two arms and I had to move my body on very slowly. Quite unlike the day before, I has clear sky with almost no cloud but the strong sun light came about with very strong wind. Heavy snow fall on the day before made it very hard for me to go on moving as well.
I had a privilege to go on hiking through the virgin snow for a couple of hours as well as to be the first one to hit the mountain top. I was lucky to have a chance to be in the very middle of land of snow.
