22-23 March 2014

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

1 January 2014

Early morning I take the first train from Tokyo to Enoshima for the first sun of 2014.

First sun of the year has so meaningful for Japansese people. There are many Japaneses come to the beach near Enoshima just to see the first sun with their happiness.

So now, I already have enough energy to challenge this year and I can share to you as well :)

Happy New Year 2014 to everyone :D

16 November 2013

It’s about 1 year and 1 month passed … then I come back here again in Kawaguchiko to meet my beloved Fujisan.

Autumn color here might be a bit late so I decide to travel around 5 lakes just to see this Japan symbol from the lakes it made long time ago.

First day arriving, go directly to Chureito pagoda and Oshino Hakkai to see Fujisan in different view and this time is great because shy mountain reveal itself to me clearly :D

Time left in the evening, Yamankako is a good choice as last destination for the first day. Shadow of Fujisan when the sunset is also amazing.

Early morning on the second day, my target is to see sun rise then the best place is Motosuko (Lake Motosu) where you can find the view point in 1000Yen note :)

Also traveling around 5 lake is interesting. Starting from Motosuko, Shojiko, Saiko, Kawaguchiko and end up at Yamanakako before going back to Tokyo for freshly working week coming. Feeling of seeing how Fujisan made this 5 lakes with nice weather come inside my body are releasing all of my stress. I recommend you all to try once or twice a year especially office guys in the city :D

These 2 days weather is really nice and I can clearly see my beloved mountain. What a very nice weekend :D

1-2 October 2012

Again I visited Kawaguchiko. (My first time in Kawaguchiko here )

This time I took 2 days walking around 2 lakes (Kawaguchiko and Yamanakako) and 1 night to stay in ryokan next to Kawaguchiko.

First day was for Yamanakako. On the bus from Kawaguchiko to Yamanakako, then , I started walking full round of this lake and I made it :)

A bit luck that this time I could see my lovely shy Fujisan that almost covered by clouds in the evening time.

Around 6PM I have to run for the bus to Kawaguchiko because my dinner in ryokan will be end at 8PM. Then at night I had the best relax time in Japan by staying in big and best environment ryokan here :)

Second day, it was the time for Kawaguchiko. this day was even worse than the day before because my Fujisan had totally gone behind the big cloud :(

Kawaguchiko is quite an challenging place that encourage you to come back any time you want just to see the most beautiful landmark in Japan … Fujisan :D

11 December 2010

Last 2 years I’d been to Kawaguchiko and it was very nice weather and view.

Took the train since early morning and walked around the lake till evening that made me refresh from very busy weekdays.

October 1st. to 2nd., 2012 will be the second time to Kawaguchiko. And this time I’ve booked the hotel for one night onsen with Fujisan view overthere :)

Absolutely, I hope the weather will be nice even it’s still hot now in Japan.

See you again in next 2 weeks. My lovely Fujisan :D
