Magestic Mt. Fuji
When you see Mt. Fuji in person, it is clear why it is a UNESCO World Heritage site. An active volcano, it is well hidden by clouds and Japanese fog. It took us three days to lock in a clear view, and we nearly missed it. During our travels, we reserved an overnight stay at an onsen along Lake Fujikawaguchiko. We hiked, relaxed, walked the perimeter of the lake, and took a tiny, early morning peek at Fuji from a break in the clouds. It seemed as though a glimpse was all we were going to get, so we headed to the train station. As we waited, with a month's worth of luggage in tow, we noticed people were taking pictures across the station. I peered out, and there she was - the weather took a rest and in full sunshine was Mt. Fuji.
Like crazy people, we started taking photos, but the wires of the train station prevented a good shot. So we ran, dragging our luggage behind us. Sweaty and out of breath, we decided to take a cab back to Lake Fujikawaguchiko, and there was the prime opportunity to take some amazing photos.
