The climbing route started to get narrower, steeper and rockier. Most of us got tired as we just arrived the third station, and there were five more stations to go. Then different complains began. It must be very fun to spend the day exploring the Tokyo city! one of my friend said. Everybody was depressed and frustrated. At this moment we saw one old Japanese couple with grey hair and wrinkles on their faces pass by.They held hands closely and supported each other. We were so touched by this scene that soon we started climbing faster. With friends™ strength and courage, we finally maded to the eighth station by 8pm, just 200 metres away from the peak. We all have our own ideas of what our life journey should be like. However, unexpectations and surprises would happen. Then we might get sick and feel frustrated, but we should never stop.

Thus we must accept every gift whatever this journey gives us. This is because everything happens for a reason. Be brave to confront different aspects of life journey.
All in all, life is a magical journey full of fun. But it is also dangerous and full of troubles. We will meet people you are not familiar with, see and learn things we haven™t seen and known before. This life journey allows us to understand the value of our life and realize the value of ourselves, since each one is wonderful, special and significant. Be grateful of having this experience.
