Having successfully reached the summit of 8,848-meter Mt. Everest in May, alpinist Satoshi Tamura, 51, used sign language to convey his message to an audience at his alma mater, the Tokyo Metropolitan Tachikawa School for the Deaf in Tachikawa, Tokyo, on June 27.
“It doesn’t matter whether or not you can hear. If you have the courage to give it a try, you’ll find a way,” said Tamura, who lives in Tachikawa.
