Mt. Fuji

We moved on from Tokyo, heading off to Mt. Fuji; we were both really excited to begin our tour of Japan. Our schedule has been so tight since we left the UK that today was our first real day to down tools and just relax with each other.

We had a really enjoyable coach journey to Kawaguchiko at the base of Mt. Fuji. We are staying at a place called K's Hostel which is awesome. See our seperate review. Anyone heading this way, definately consider staying here, we guarantee you won't be disappointed. Check in wasn't supposed to be until three and we arrived at 11.30 but the nice staff allowed us into the room anyway as it was ready. We decided to use the rest of the day to catch up with our chores and just relax and enjoy each others company without rushing around. So we cracked on with laundry, photo uploading and blog writing using the free internet at the hostel.

The other huge advantage for us is the well equiped kitchen at the hostel. We headed off to the local supermarket and must have spent an hour or so wandering around looking at the food. We loved that fact that a supermarket can be such a reflection of a country's culture. We bought enough for a feast and a few beers too and headed back to the hostel.
