Something Spectacular: Mt Fuji at Sunrise

When was the last time you saw something spectacular? Something that was so amazing it took your breath away.

For me it was the time I saw the rays of the sun lighting up Mt Fuji. I had arrived at Yamanakako with very low expectations. It was supposed to be cloudy and rainy and even though Mt Fuji was only 15 kilometres away, it would be well nigh impossible to see it. And yet just after midnight the skies cleared and there was Mt Fuji looming up in the darkness of the moonlight. It was the only time in my life I can say that I did not feel unhappy about staying awake most of the night gawking at Fujisan from the cold balcony of the hotel room. After all how many times in your life are you going to see something as spectacular as this?

    Lovely. I’ve only had the opportunity to see it from a plane. To have the time to really observe it must be amazing!

      It was quite an experience! I had fully prepared myself to be disappointed because it was cloudy but then it all cleared up and voila there it was!
