I’m Hikaru Morita of Sakurazaka46’s 2nd generation🌱
It’s a little bit late, but I went on the 1st single hit prayer campaign for “Soko Magattara, Sakurazaka?”!
This time, we climbed a mountain called Mount Kinpu!
It’s 2599m above sea level!
Since we were doing intense mountain climbing training, we didn’t take the typical route, instead we took one of the more rugged routes out of the many other treacherous routes.
Furthermore, for the sake of safety we only 8 people climbed the mountain, however we tackled the challenge carrying the feelings and hopes of all 26 members!
Halfway along the route we saw Mount Fuji~
I gained some power after seeing Mount Fuji!
There were a variety of rough spots, but for me the most surprising part for me was the very beginning when we had to cross the river barefooted 👣
It was really cold..
Though, since I had that experience from the very beginning, I was able to persevere with the rest of the tough journey.
I was also pretty anxious during the part where we had to climb up using chains, but once I begun climbing, I was able to see some really beautiful scenery. It deeply moved me~
It was a really steep slope, so my the weight on my calves was dreadful and I kept saying: “My calves~” the entire time..
Although, our guide told us that if our calves tense up, they’ll become pretty! So I thought to give it my all! ( ´｀)
When I touched my calves the next day, their shape felt completely different!
It really shocked me~..
Our guide told me a lots of things, such as snippets of knowledge and the proper breathing technique. It was really reassuring and made the experience fun.
Also, to the staff and cameramen who helped us during such a difficult time..
Thank you very much!!
A picture of the summit~
We all did our hit prayer at the Shintai (object of worship believed to contain the spirit of a deity) called the Gojo Stone.
Not only did it give us good luck, it also shined the sun on our faces.
Everyone was really moved~..
It makes me really happy to be able to accomplish a hit prayer without any issues!
Once again, I’m looking forward to your support of our 1st single “Nobody’s fault”!
I took a lot of pictures, so I’ll be posting them.
What an amazing location!
She feels like my girlfriend!
Here, Risa-san, Ten-chan, and Karin-chan were exchanging sweets, and were really cute whilst eating them ^ ^
It was the same at the summit, but after it became even darker and the temperature lowered, it became really cold on the way down.
Sugai-san kept gently brushing my hair for me on the way down. Her kindness made me want to cry.
Thank you very much ( ´｀)
The staff kept playing Nobody’s fault and Keyaki songs, so it really helped me persevere through it all!
I talked with Hono-chan, who was in-front of me, about everything that’s happened to us up until now as we descended the mountain~.
Also, the scenery was really beautiful, it felt like I was walking through a picture book ^ ^
Mount Kinpu was a really wonderful mountain.
Thank you to those of you who watched the episode!
I hope “Nobody’s fault” can reach many more people…
I took pictures of everyone on a Cheki ( ´｀)
Well then, that’s all for today…
Thank you very much for reading until the very end!
