I'm in Yokohama. There are three miliatary bases near by but I almost never see military personal (esp after what happened in Okinawa recently).
No one climes Fuji. It's too easy to call a climb. It's more like walking up a flight -- a very long, long flight -- of stairs.
But the view is amazing. I've climbed a few times but I go because when you get over the mountain there's an amazing rollarcoaster park there. It boasts the worlds highest and fastest rollarcoasters and the worlds longest haunted house (takes over an hour to get out, assuming you find the right paths).
How long ago did your brother serve over here?
