I’ve always been interested in the outdoors even as a child, and love hiking and camping. When I was young I was even a member of the Cub Scouts! I began climbing mountains more seriously about 10 years ago. We Japanese just love climbing mountains; it’s in our blood. Climbing Mt Fuji was especially important to me (though I ended up with altitude sickness).
I stopped climbing mountains for a number of years, but still had my old equipment and enjoy going on hikes. I fell in love with the 360 degree view that you can experience from the top of a mountain.
A lot has happened in my life, believe it or not I used to be your everyday salaryman. Then one day I decided to take the plunge and do what I want, which lead me to me opening my own BBQ restaurant! We only live once right? I think it’s important to do what you want in life.
