2012 Picture of the Week (49/52) – Beautiful

I never get tired of this view.  One of the best things about living in Kanagawa is that Mt. Fuji can be seen from almost anywhere, as long as your view isn’t obstructed.  If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you may recognise this view.  On the left is Mt. Fuji covered with snow and some clouds, while the mountains in the foreground are the Tanzawa Mountains.  I’ve climbed two mountains in this photo, Mt. Fuji and Mt. Oyama (it’s the peak on the left in the Tanzawa Mountains).  No matter how many times I see this view, I am amazed.  It is beautiful.

  1. Absolutely. My family lives in Totsuka and Mt. Fuji can be seen form the Balcony. Looking at it makes me feel at peace.

    • Oh really? Totsuka’s pretty close to me. Just a quick ride on the Yokohama subway. Oddly enough, I didn’t get to regularly see Mt. Fuji until I moved to Fujisawa 2 years ago. The previous 5 1/2 years, I had hills in the way of the view in Ofuna and Sugita (Yokohama).
