Mount Fuji (about 150 km west of Tokyo),
the highest mountain in Japan at 3,776 m.
Mrs. and Mr. Ito, my sister Shinae’s Japanese friends kindly invited us to a daytrip to Mount Fuji.
Yes, Mount Fuji, the symbol of Japan, big and upright!
What I had expected to see was like this Hokusai’s painting.
But the weather on Mount Fuji is notorious for its fog. On Mount Fuji, we could hardly see Mount Fuji. The fog had barely lifted when the mountain began to fog up again.
The rarity of its clear view probably makes Mount Fuji more sacred and mysterious.
