As the Diaoyu Drama heats up with China clashing with the Japanese Coast Guard over ownership of the Pinnacle Islets aka Senkaku/Diaoyu* Islands, now this happens…

China News reports … a father and son nationalist duo from Nanjing, who summitted Mt Fuji over the holiday weekend and unfurled a banner reading “Mount Fuji belongs to China!” at the top…he expected there to be refreshment stands on the way and went woefully unprepared…the “conquerors” of Mt Fuji were eventually rescued by a Japanese first aid officer who gave them water and medical treatment.

Ok, ok, I was just fooling with you. The real headline reads

    No conbinis on the Senkaku islands, either.

    Moron. My 5 year old has logged more miles in the mts in the last year than probably 99% of the people in the world in their whole lives and there is no way I would take him up Fuji out of season. He got what he deserved and I hope the SAR bill is huge. Poor kid.

    Is it O.K. if I cite your report in my MastersThesis? I think your spin on the outrageous Chinese behavior this supports my paper perfectly. Thanks for posting this.

    Did they actually make it to the top? There seems to be a bit of a slope in the background of that photo.

    The “top” of Mount Fuji is actually an uneven rim that has higher spots than the official top with the little shrine, summer shops and post office. The weather station (now automated) is 10 m higher than the official top that the tourists end up at and it has the tractor road that rescue squads use.

    The “slope in the background” looks like the road that ends at the base of of the weather station that I have seen (but everything on Mt. Fuji looks the same).

    Oops I was wrong…

    Rescuers sent to save ‘Eagle Dad’ after he ignored warnings and took his long-suffering son on a trek up Mount Fuji
    Mail Online | Oct 10, 2012
    [The father, Mr Liesheng,] admitted that he was as terrified as his children on some stretches of the climb, when the trio were forced to scale 70-degree slopes.
    The militant father had not brought waterproof clothing, so a sudden downpour soaked them to the skin, and most shelters on the mountain were boarded up.
    As temperatures dipped to almost zero and the air became thinner, his children began crying and Duoduo, whose real name is He Yede, was nearly collapsing with altitude sickness.
    At 3,700 yards (3,400m) up, Mr Liesheng admitted defeat and the group were rescued by park rangers, who gave them warm clothes and medical treatment.
    The family had just enough time to pose with a banner that read: 'The Diaoyu Islands belong to China' before beginning their descent with the help of the rangers.
