What seemed to me just another small shrine in the middle of nowhere as you climb your way up Mt. Fuji turned out to be considered one of the many “Power Spots” in Japan, as it became clear by the unexpected number of people arriving every so often. A crippled man walks in, his struggle in each step being perceived by everyone around him. His peers offer help but after conquering the first step of this small shrine, he politely thanked them and asked to do it by himself. We all watched as he continuously challenged each centimeter on his way up and I want to believe that everyone there felt equally grateful to be able to witness his act of faith and perseverance.
