Kiyoyuki must have the stamina of a 37 yo and a mountain I.Q. of a 107 yo!

Hope this will encourage the rescuers not to give up even after 1 week.

Ending good, everything good. He'll live to tell the tale and climb more mountains... I can only hope I'll be just as tough as this guy at his age.

Doesn't seem popular in Japan but in other hiking countries emergency locator beacons are very cheap to rent & save many lives every year. Anyone hiking for more than a day alone should be encouraged to carry one. At least this guy seemed reasonably well experienced & prepared but could have easily ended in tragedy.

good outcome indeed, but it says he kept himself warm with his raincoat… no sleeping bag for a planned 4-day mountain jaunt? fushigi!
