Japanese man climbs world’s tallest peaks
A Japanese adventurer and mountaineer has recently completed a climb in Nepal, making him the first Japanese person to climb the world's tallest 14 mountains.
Hirotake Takeuchi completed his 17 year long mission on May 26th, which saw him conquer such natural wonders as K2 and Everest.
Hirotake is said to be only the 30th person to complete this feat and is the first from Japan. What makes his accomplishment even more amazing is that he was nearly killed in 2007 by an avalanche on Mount Gashabrum, yet continued chasing this dream.
Some might think that, after such an impressive feat, you would want to hang up your mountain boots and take it easy, but the Japanese mountaineer plans to head to the Himalayas next year to climb another peak.
