Day One: Mount Fuji

Over the summer I created over 35 achievement badges for the Withings Health Mate fitness app. I'm going to post one per day until I run out!

To start it off, here's one of my favourites — Mount Fuji. Although I haven't been to Japan yet, climbing to the summit of Mount Fuji has been a dream of mine for years.

"Mount Fuji (3776 meters) is Japan's highest mountain and the focal point of the sprawling Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park. Visible from Tokyo on a clear day, the mountain is located to the west of Tokyo on the main island Honshu, straddling the border between Yamanashi and Shizuoka prefectures.

The official climbing season lasts for only two months, from July to August. At the summit, you can set your postcards apart from the rest with a postmark from the highest post office in Japan. It's located between the 10th stations of the Gotemba and Fujinomiya routes, and is open from 6 AM to 2 PM for 42 days from early July to late August."
