About Junko Tabei
Junko Tabei (Junko Ishibashi) (1939-2016) was a Japanese mountaineer, an author, and a teacher. She was the first woman to reach the summit of Mount Everest and the first woman to ascend the Seven Summits, climbing the highest peak on every continent. Junko was born as the fifth daughter among 7 children and was considered a frail child in her early days. Nevertheless, just at the age of 10, she began climbing the mountain, while on a class trip to Mount Nasu. Junko loved climbing but her family did not have enough money for such an expensive hobby so Tabei made only a few climbs during her high school years. She went on to study English and American literature at Showa’s Woman University and climbed consistently through her studies.
After graduating, Tabei formed the Joshi-Tohan mountaineering club for women only, whose motto was “Let’s go on an overseas expedition by ourselves”. Tabei led her club on a number of ascents, including the first woman-only ascent to Annapurna III, in Nepal and then made history in 1975 when she became the first woman to climb Everest at age 35 with a two year old daughter at home. Junko continued climbing until the year she died.
