AS SUMMER officially opened in July in the land of the rising sun, Japan’s famous Mt. Fuji, one of its country’s symbol welcomed hikers and mountaineers from all over the world. Climbing the perfect cone-shaped volcano in the far east is among the goals marked in every hiking enthusiast’s bucket list.
At least 112,200 hikers, both locals and foreigners alike flocked to Japan’s highest peak in the past year. People of various ages, race and cultural orientation may come across each other along the trail, but regardless of your origin, climbing to the highest point entails preparation necessary for every climber’s unique needs.
The basics would be proper clothing such as lightweight down jacket and winter pants ideal for extreme weather conditions — Yes! The weather decreases as you ascend to every station until it goes below the negative at the pinnacle even in mid-summer — and appropriate climbing gears and equipment such as light mountaineer’s bag, spike-soled climber’s sneakers, and strong climbing stick, to name a few. Other necessities would depend on each individual’s personal needs such as a yoga mat, photography equipment, or a drone set among others.
You do not need to worry so much about the food and water, though, as they are provided at every station leading to the summit. Small cottages with sleeping cots are also available in every station upon reservation.
As for the smokers (who comprise over 30 percent of all Mt. Fuji climbers) particularly the e-cigarette users, packing the ideal disposable vape electronic cigarette is necessary especially when you have planned to traverse on a much more challenging trail going to the pinnacle. The entire hike may go on for two to three days — or even more — depending on what station you will set for your origin. You can buy disposable e-cigarette online a few days before you embark on your hiking journey.
For instance, the advanced personal vaporizer or the e-cigarette modified style can contain a huge amount of e-liquid making it convenient for the mountaineers, and hence, an ideal disposable e-cig for them. It is also offered in a variety of volts giving a great advantage to hikers who are always on the move. What more, it is preferred by seasoned e-cig users as it creates a higher level of vaping experience, making your traverse to Mt. Fuji a much more enjoyable overall experience.
