It's not every day you get to see a Super Famicom (aka SNES) sitting on top of Japan's highest mountain.

On Japanese web forum 2ch, one commenter recently brought the console with him as he climbed Mt. Fuji, writing, "The feeling of nature and harmony is freakin' amazing hahahaha."

Obviously, it would be difficult (but not impossible) to play a Super Famicom on Mt. Fuji. The idea for bringing the console was kind of like when you see old cars overgrown with nature—how they become one with the environment.

"Another thought, though, is that the big and bulky Super Famicom is unsuitable for mountain climbing," the commenter joked.

They also sell beer on Mt. Fuji—overpriced beer. That normal-sized can of Asahi is around $6 (usually, they're around $1.75).

The commenter concluded, "Mt. Fuji is plenty fun even if you don't bring a Super Famicom." Duly noted.
