What is the meaning of this Mt. Fuji sign?

Nihon Sangaku Renmei Shuunen Kinen sign on Mt. Fuji

Nihon Sangaku Renmei Shuunen Kinen sign on Mt. Fuji

I read through your Climbing Mt. Fuji guide page and was wondering if you had ever seen this?

I climbed the mountain a few years ago and had a picture of it, however I had a break in and they took my hard drive with all my photos on it.

The pound signs are numbers (6). Can you help me out?

Japan mountain association commemorative anniversity plaque
by: Gary Wolff

Christina, the Japanese language is not my forte, but I consulted a Japanese friend who translated the sign as follows:

創立 (souritsu) - founding
周年記念 (shuunenkinen) - memorial anniversary
日本山岳 (nihonsangaku) - Japan mountains
主催 (shusai) - organized
国 (kuni) - country
山岳連盟 (sangakurenmei) - mountain association

It seems that the plaque may be commemorating the ??th year anniversary of some unknown event, and was perhaps funded or sponsored by a mountain climbing association such as the Japan Mountaineering Association (http://www.jma-sangaku.or.jp/cominfo/) or the Japanese Alpine Club (http://www.jac.or.jp/).

As for the missing 6 numbers, I don't have a clue. Sorry I failed to solve your puzzle, but it was fun giving it a shot nonetheless... :-)
