Mount Fuji has long been a climber's dream. The tallest mountain in Japan, Fuji rises some 12,389 feet into the sky.

Peak climbing season is July and August. Many climbers make the 8-hour trek up the mountain at night in order to see the famous "arrival of light" in the morning.

Instagram put a call out to collect images of the daily event. Check them out below and see more on Instagram's blog.
