From where I live, I cannot get a nice view of Mt. Fuji. Some decades ago, when the air was much clearer, from Kanto area people can see Mt. Fuji well. There are many place having name like “Fujimi-dai” (hill of Fuji viewing).
One automn morning after some rain shower I went to a shopping mall , in Yamato Kanagawa Japan more than 40km west of Mt.Fuji, and was able to see the top of the snow covered mountain. I go there every week to do my weekend shopping. Usually some clouds are there around horizon and I cannot see well. It was a beautiful surprise to me that white slope of the mountain can be seen well .
