I have arrived, hopped the trains to Uguisudani, checked into my hotel, acquired クリームパン (not アンパン -- maybe I'll get some tomorrow), 500ml of Kirin from the hotel vending machine, and settled in. Ah, Japan, how your weather sucks, and yet, being here is happiness. Another hour or so here, and I'll go ahead and crash (I have hopes that my jet-lag will be fairly easy to deal with this time around).

The flight was reasonably hellish -- lots of drugs got me through it, but even though the cold is noticeably receding (my voice is about back to normal), it wasn't pleasant (dry, thin air does not make your throat happy). Could have been even worse, I guess. But overall, I'm feeling a fair bit better, and am pretty optimistic about climbing Fuji-sama on Monday.
Current Location: Uguisudani, Tokyo, Japan

I hate rain, but let me say, the rain today felt really, really nice (when it's so humid as it is here, nothing can make it more humid, but at least rain makes it cooler).

Fuji-sama, hm? Yeah... I get it. If you're extra polite, maybe the mountain will be nice to you. :D

See you in a few days!

The mountain kicked my ass!

...But I won anyway. See ya tomorrow, maybe (did I give you my phone number? If not, check the next entry or two. Well, assuming you have any way of reading this).

Well, give me about three weeks, and I'll see what I can do.
