Day trip to Kawaguchiko to go see Mt. Fuji! Even though this is my third time in Japan, this is my first time seeing it up close.
We spent the entire day there and we were able to catch several glimpses of the ever-elusive Mt. Fuji. Even with that we felt really lucky! It was mostly covered by clouds the entire time. When it finally appeared, we actually saw people hurry off the bus and run to get a good photo because it can disappear behind the clouds in literally minutes!
1) Mt. Fuji! Only showed itself like this for maybe 15min.
2) It's actually much easier to see it the morning! This is on the bus over.
3) Around 2pm. It's like where's Waldo, but Mt. Fuji. Can you spot our friend?
4) Yay you found him! That's the actual mountain but since the top is covered, the base just looks like a hill. It's like this pretty much all the time!! Mt. Fuji is a special, majestic mountain. Made more so by the fact that you can literally be right beside it and not be able to see it at all. It makes seeing it--when you can--that much more rewarding 🗻
