During my time in Japan I took a lot of pictures of Mount Fuji – Japan’s highest mountain. This is my Top 7.
Tokyo’s city hall is located in Shinjuku and it’s 45th floor can be climbed for free. If the view is very clear, especially on cold days during sunset it’s possible to see the volcano.
On some very clear days it was possible to spot Mount Fuji from some streets in Tokyo. This picture was taken in front of Setagaya-Daita-Station.
Depending where your apartment is located it might be possible to see Fuji from the balcony. A friend of mine lives on the 31st floor.
In case you wish to escape from the big city Mount Takao is not too far from Tokyo and a nice place for hiking.
Another great daytrip is a trip to the Hakone National Park, especially in autumn, because there are many beautifully coloured leaves.
On some of my flights I was lucky to spot Mount Fuji while take-off.
Or while flying over it.
In case you wish to see pictures from the opposite site I would recommend my post on climbing Mount Fuji. I climbed the volcano over night to see the sunrise from it’s top.
