As far as I can remember, the  last time I climb a mountain was in 2010. I climbed South Korea’s Mt. Neajang. This year, if God permits, I am going to climb the world-famous Mt. Fuji of Japan. But considering the fact that Mt.Fuji is 3,776 m high, I should really have to prepare my self physically and mentally.  So on my 35th birthday, I decided to climb Mt. Ten, locally known as Tenzan.

Nothing is impossible to this father and daughter tandem. They believed they could, and they made it!  This guy climbed Tenzan with his daughter comfortably clinging on his back.
