Thanks for your comments. They got me thinking that it might be interesting to find out what percentage of Japanese people have climbed the mountain. I tried googling it, but I could only find figures for how many people climb it annually.
Anyway, as I said, I do not intend to climb the Mt. Fuji in the summer season when it’s really crowded, but I might try it off-season one day if I can find some adventurous friends to go with me.
Here is some feedback on your comments.
I can’t tell how pleased I was to dive into a hot onsen after going down to Kiyosato.
This may just be a typo, but “I can’t tell you how pleased I was…”
Mt. Fuji is only allowed to climb during July and August because it’s dangerous to climb in another months.

Last year I gave a serious thought to climb it

Maybe I can handle those problems but my children might not.

not a few people suddenly start to feel like going to see a world cultural heritage as soon as it has been decided to given a special name.

It says that 片山’s co-climbers were both dead because of an accident.
… were both killed in an accident.
As you know, the first one means “the beginning of the climbing season”, but the latter one means “to found a temple, or the founder himself”
Thanks for the info. I didn’t know that.
I have to leave a plan for climbing Mt. Fuji. up in the air, because of It(UNESCO status.)
I didn’t understand this sentence. If you explain what you were trying to say, I’ll help you translate it into English.
I found an another interesting article. Mt. Fuji might errup again!
Apparently, there is a serious risk of this happening.
I try not to worry about it too much because if you do, it’s almost impossible to live in a volcanic country like Japan!
That’s a good attitude for people going about their daily lives. Unfortunately, it seems to be shared by the operators of nuclear power plants!
Perhaps the best choice is to fly to Gifu and take your lectures! I wish I had どこでもドア!!
You would be very welcome!
If so, you shouldn’t have got me wrong? or you still think so?
If I had, maybe you wouldn’t have taken me wrongly? Or maybe you would have got the same impression anyway?
I don’t really understand the differences between “I’m Okinawan” and “I’m from Okinawa”!
Actually, there is a slight difference here. “I’m from Okinawa” is just saying where you were born, whereas “I’m Okinawan” stresses that this is part of your identity.
I have a question for your latest tweet “I went and told you the answer!”. What does “went” mean?
“Went and …” is similar to してしまった. It expresses the idea that you did something you shouldn’t have done.
One of the sudents started talking about her trip to Mt.Fuji she took with her husband last Autumn.

That’s all for today. I have a meeting with the house builder tomorrow, and we are going to sign the contract. If everything goes according to plan, the building will start in about a month.
Have a great weekend.
