Daniel Wieczorek was born in 1947 in Ionia, Michigan. He graduated from the University of Michigan with a B.S. in Forestry in 1969. He moved to Oregon to work in the field of forestry in 1971. That was followed by a move to Alaska in 1975, where he continued his career in forestry. After about a 14 year career in forestry, Daniel decided to do something different and he served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in The Philippines from 1985 – 1987. Upon completion of his Peace Corps service he returned to Alaska, where he attended the University of Alaska – Fairbanks and received an M.B.A. in 1991. This was followed by a move to South Korea in 1992, where Daniel taught English to Korean people wishing to improve their English Language skills. Daniel’s next stop was in New York City, where he worked as temporary staff at Deutsche Bank from 1998 – 2001. He left NYC in March 2001 and moved on to his present home in Mitaka City, Tokyo, Japan. He is teaching English in Japan and at this time he’s been teaching as a career for about 17 years. He has been hiking, climbing and doing photography since he was about 12 years old.

DEDICATION:

This work is dedicated, first of all, to my partner, Kazuya Numazawa. He always keeps my interest in photography up and makes me keep striving for the perfect photo. He also often makes me think of the expression when the going gets tough, the tough keep going. Without my partner it has to also be noted that I most likely would not have climbed any of these mountains.

Secondly, it is dedicated to my mother and father, bless them, for tolerating and even encouraging my photography hobby from the time I was 12 years old.

And, finally, it is dedicated to my friends who have encouraged me to create books of photographs which I have taken while doing mountain climbing.

"Mountains are the cathedrals where I practice my religion."

Anatoli Boukreev

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.

John Muir, The Mountains of California

Chasing angels or fleeing demons, go to the mountains.

Jeffrey Rasley

FOREWORD

What is the purpose of this series of books? It is to show you, in photographs, some of the astounding sights and scenery we have seen while climbing the mountains included herein. At this time we have climbed 14 of Japan’s 100 Famous Mountains. The ones we have climbed are: 1) Mt. Daisetsu (2,290 m) (大雪山) = Mt. Asahidake (旭岳); 2) Mt. Chokai (2,236 m) (鳥海山); 3) Mt. Gassan (1,984 m) (月山); 4) Mt. Hakkoda (1,584 m) (八甲田山); 5) Mt. Zao (1,841 m) (蔵王山); 6) Mt. Kumotori (2,017 m) (雲取山); 7) Mt. Kusatsu-Shirane (2,171 m) (草津白根山); 8) Mt. Shibutsu (2,228 m) (至仏山); 9) Mt. Kiso-Komagatake (2,956 m) (木曾駒ヶ岳); 10) Mt. Kitadake (North Peak) (3,192 m) (北岳); 11) Mt. Mizugaki (2,230 m) (瑞牆山); 12) Mt. Shiroumadake (2,932 m) (白馬岳); 13) Mt. Tateyama (3,015 m) (立山); and 14) Mt. Yatsugatake (2,899 m) (八ヶ岳).

By the way, I (Daniel) did all of the writing and Kazuya did a fair percentage of the photography. So, do not be surprised from time to time when you see references such as Kazuya and that’s me….

Daniel and Kazuya’s Outdoor Photography of Japan: Through the Seasons includes some of the same photos as this work, but this work may be thought of as a subset of that work because that work includes adventures to many mountains beyond the 14 famous mountains which are found in this series of books. In addition, the photos in that book were more than 50% flower photos. This series includes less than 1% flower photos, and only where the flower is a part of a mountain scene. In addition, this series includes many photos which were not included in that work.
