Did you ever do the Ishidan Marathon? My first Ishidan Marathon was the first time I ever climbed Mount Haguro - and it was a fun day... well, other than the fact I faded terribly at the end. But it was a magical day.

Did you narrate the video?

Wonderful video, so much history there! The Pagoda is a fantastic piece of architecture and the trees that surround it are amazing! Very cool that you can get vegetarian buddhist meals at the top and the view is stunning!
