62701 Two out for a "riki" ride.
JanOP1-75:3 Japanese pilgrim returning from a visit to the top of peerless
Fuji. The nine care takers in charge of as many rest stations on the
ascent, burn on the walking sticks the names of their stations to show that
the trip has actually been made. The ascent is usually made between the
15th of July and 15th of Sept. as c***s fear taking the trip as long as
there is any snow on the grass. In former years women were debarred from
ascending to the top of all these sacred peaks. In some localities the
rule is still enforced. The height is 12,365 ft. Last eruption took place
between Dec. 16, 1707 and Jan. 22, 1708.
