Fuji San

May 25, 2015

PS

We just wanted to show you how much we appreciated mount Fuji by example of the pictures that we took. We stayed in Kawaguchiko for a week and the mountain honestly changed every time that we looked at it.

There are many pictures. We cut them down to these.

We first saw Fuj (as it became affectionately know) from the commuter train

Dusk light..

Almost dark, skulking in the shadows

P1020636

Almost entirely hidden behind the clouds

P1020642

Thrown into shadow by a huge cloud

Crazy green clouds at the base, we were a little worried about this. Turns out it was seeds from the forest and not poisonous gas.

Another sunset, this time the pinks just before the light goes

With a theme park at the bottom, you know, as you do
