Every Friday I’ll be sharing a photo from someplace in my travels.

This week’s photo is from Mount Fuji, Japan.

At 12,389 ft high, this exceptionally symmetrical stratovolcano is world renowned as a symbol of Japan. It is one of Japan’s “Three Holy Mountains” and many Japanese make the pilgrimage to the top at least once in their lifetime.  I had always dreamed of visiting Fuji-san, or to at least see it from a distance; but often Fuji-san is considered “shy” and is hidden away in the clouds. While sometimes visible from Tokyo, you have to consider yourself lucky if you get a clear glimpse at this mountain.

And lucky we were! We had unobstructed views of Fuji-san during our whole visit to this sacred mountain. I couldn’t have been more grateful.

    Great shot of Mount Fuji! You’re lucky it wasn’t covered in clouds.
