While I’m waiting for Sakura blooming, during nice weather & day off, it’s time for Fujisan view hunting.
Starting location is Yokosuka near to Zushi station in Kanagawa prefecture. Actually the first 3 places are not that famous for Fujisan view but I should try to see Fujisan from 360 degree. This mountain is one of the special mountain in the world that it’s look great in every angles :)
The first places is Tateishi park, a small park where you can see tiny Fujisan between the rocks. It seems like nature built it perfectly long time ago.
On the way to find breakfast and coffee, second place has been found in hiding place on the beach. It’s one of special because between the beach and Fujisan, there is an small red Torii. Japaneses know how to make their landscape looking good in everywhere even in a remote place.
Next place is not that far. It’s also one of hiding place from foreigner. Here we can see Fujisan with Enoshima island. I take quite long time here to smell the sea and see my lovely Fujisan before heading for lunch in late afternoon.
After long rest in the afternoon, I want to see sunset at the first place. But unluckily, clouds are moving to cover the whole Fujisan. This mountain always shy and try to hide itself from me in the cloud :(
At the end of the first day, I’m heading to Fujinomiya without plan for Hotel. Fujinomiya is just small town that will be easy for next day destination but all hotels are fully booked. Finally, it’s my first time to sleep in internet cafe. It’s such a nice place for night fun but not for taking a rest hahaha.
Early morning, Fumoto para is the destination. This place is the camping place near to lake Motosu. It’s the best view for this trip even just to see Fujisan from a tiny pond in the camping place.
Before lunch time, tea plantation in Shizuoka is a good idea. It’s still too early in the morning then lake Motosu is the nice place to take a coffee break with 1000 yen view.
Heading to Shizuoka tea plantation where is producing almost half of tea product in Japan. So it is one of the special place to see Fujisan with tea plant. Beautiful plant view and clear sky make my day. This weekend is so pretty :D
On the way back to Tokyo by Tomei expressway, last special location is to see Fujisan with Shinkansen. Rice farm next to Shinkansen track open for photographer who love both Fujisan and Shinkansen. Nothing more perfect than this weekend actually even it’s not at the right day to see Sakura, sunset and sunrise on Fujisan :D
I’ve put the map for this trip here in case who want to see lovely Fujisan in different way … You will love Fujisan more and more :D
