ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the challenges of climbing the top of Mount Fuji in Japan during summer. So deeply ingrained is the mountain in the spiritual, social and artistic life of Japan that every year in July and August an estimated 200,000 people climb it. On July 1 every year two religious groups one on the north tide and one on the south side celebrate the beginning of the climbing season with ceremonies.
