From the parking lot it is a 398 step climb up to the pagoda.
This image was taken with my Canon 5DSr, at ISO 50, f11, 17mm and 1/4 second
After a 398 step climb in the dark to reach the Chureito Pagoda in Fujiyoshida , Yamanashi Japan I waited for the sun to rise in the east. The side light illuminated the eastern face of Mt. Fuji and the Pagoda on this amazing morning. The hike is well worth the effort. In the spring time the cherry blossoms would make this image simply amazing.
