Lucky Days in Japan


One of the best experiences I have had was going to Japan. I went to Tokyo, Japan for two weeks in the summer of 2016 and I would absolutely love to go back. Although there are many, many stories I could tell about this experience, this one is one of my favorites.

For part of the time I was in Japan, I stayed with a host family. We had already done most of the things to do downtown, but one thing we had wanted to do was journey to Mt. Fuji.  Our family warned us that we would most likely not get to see the top of the mountain during that time of year, but that we could try if we wanted, so we did. We took a little road trip through Japan, seeing many rice fields and stopping at a gas station on the way. We arrived about two hours later to a town a few miles from the mountain and enjoyed their shops and views. To our host family’s amazement, the clouds parted and we were able to see all of Mt. Fuji. The husband was thoroughly amazed and said, while shaking his head, “you must have been very good this year,” and I think he really believed that.
