Mt.Fuji from the airplane

I love Mt. Fuji.

You will watch 3,776m free standing with amazement!

I have climbed to the top of Mt.Fuji.

And when I can see the whole Mt.Fuji beautifully, I never get tired of looking at it.

I can see it from near my house on a clear winter day.

And on sunny days I often drive out to the vicinity of Mt. Fuji to enjoy its huge, beautiful appearance.

Since there are many tourists from overseas who are also interested, I will share my experience on how to see the whole beautiful Mt.Fuji!

1: Time of year

Mt.Fuji whole view portion( month)

Mt.Fuji whole view ratio

Red bar is the percentage of the whole view, green bar is partial view percentage.

The probability of seeing the whole view is 61.8% in December, 60.8% in January, 54% in February, 53.1% in November, and 41.7% in October.

Yes, the probability is high from October to February, autumn to winter.

Conversely, the probability of seeing the entire area is quite low in June, July, and August.

2: Time of day

The entire Mt.Fuji is visible 35.8% until 8:00 am.
You should arrive Mt.Fuji area before 9:00 am.

From around 10:00, the temperature gradually rises and clouds begin to form around Mt. Fuji, hiding it from view. 

Since the Fuji Five Lakes are located on the north side of Mt. Fuji, you can take pictures early in the morning until 10:00 to avoid having your photos backlit.

However, around 12:00 backlighting will cause people to appear darker when photographed with Mt.Fuji as a background.
