Do you ever just get ridiculously confident and think, “yeah, even though I’m physically pretty inactive and most of the exercise I do nowadays involves going to and from seminars, I’m going to climb a mountain!” …That’s the thought process that got me to Mt. Takao on Wednesday the 2nd May.

If you knew how expensive taxis were in Tokyo, you’d wait 4 hours for the first train of the day too – and so, here I am, my body clock completely messed up, two …
