Greetings Mariko, There were so many good shots up there. I am glad the camera decided to die after Mt. Fuji.

Cheers,

Dad

Greetings Andreas, Thanks so much for visiting and your wonderful comments. I am not familiar with Caspar David Friedrich. I will have to google him. This was a very nice sunrise.

Cheers,

Greetings Tomoaki, How are you old friend. I hope you find a machine that will play the DVD's. I hope you like them. Thanks so much for visiting the top of Mt. Fuji at sunrise. Have you made this climb before?

Cheers,

Rich

Magnificent sunrise Rich. Can you please explain the title of this great shot, actually the reason(s) for Bonzai scream. Thanks and regards, Miša.

Richard Ryer on September 7, 2008

Greetings Misa, Thanks for visiting again. I just realized I had Banzai misspelled. Oops. The word means may "you live 10,000 years". The Japanese use it for a cheer of enthusiasm when the sun rises and wishing the sun another 10,000 years of good health.

Cheers,

Rich

Greetings Misa and Kat. This is where we all throw our hands in to the air and yell "Banzai". That was so much fun. It brought us all together.

Cheers,

Rich

Greetings Hamza, It is well worth the climb, spending the night and getting up at 2:30 in the morning so that you can be on top for the sunrise. It is very special to do this. We had a wonderful time. We met so many nice people.

Cheers,

Rich
