I’ve always wanted to see Mount Fuji (known in Japan as fujisan/富士山) and I finally got to see it in my recent trip to Japan. Very luckily for me, the weather was excellent for the entire trip (other than 1 overcast day and an evening of rain.) Thanks to the excellent weather, I managed to see and capture Mount Fuji from various locations – from a distance away as well as from a closer location.
My first encounter with the elusive snow-capped mountain was when I was up at the observation deck of the Tokyo Tower. Walking around the observation deck, I caught the snow-capped mountain peaking above the many skyscrapers in Tokyo.
I caught a closer view of Mount Fuji when I went to Hakone for a day trip.
Finally, while at Lake Kawaguchiko, one of the largest of the Fuji 5 lakes, Mount Fuji revealed her beauty once again. This is also the place I shot the most pictures of Japan’s iconic mountain. Because of strong reflections on the lake from the sun, I have to find creative ways to minimize it.
Finally, just before I left the place, I took a couple more shots.
