What it Mt. Fuji?
Mt.Fuji is the tallest mountain in Japan! It peaks at 3776m.
（this is a picture I took from outside of Hotel MIfujien.）
Mt. Fuji was registered as a World Heritage site in 2013.
Where can we see Mt.Fuji?
Mt.Fuji is in Yamanashi prefecture and Shizuoka prefecture.
You can see it from both prefectures!
You can even see Mt. Fuji from Tokyo on clear days.
Today, I would like to introduce best spots from Yamanasgi prefecture side.
5 Best spots for Mt.Fuji.
①Arakura Fuji Sengen Shrine(新倉富士浅間神社)
From Arakura Fuji Sengen shrine, I could see Mt.Fuji with houses.
②Kawaguchi Asama Shrine (河口浅間神社)
You go up these stairs.
On the way to the top, you can see Mt.Fuji with the gate of the shrine.
And, this is the view from the top! We can see Mt. Fuji with five-storied pagoda.
③Lake Kawaguchi (Kawaguchi-ko:河口湖)
I found Shiba-dog there.
Isn’t this photo so cute? Haha
It’s totally free to enter, and take pictures at this park.
Outside of the Hotel Mifujien, I could admire the top of Mt.Fuji even if it was cloudy day.
It was cloudy day, so I couldn’t admire the top of the mountain from this park.
Even so, the cloud made the scenery dream-like.
It was more like a painting than the actual view.
All the places are so perfect to see Mt.Fuji .
After you enjoy the scenery, something you need is food!
