Other Views of Mount Fuji, Part 3

Posted by
Daryl Johnson (Worcester Park, United Kingdom) on 23 March 2008 in Landscape & Rural.

If you take the shinkansen between Tokyo and Osaka, this is the view you get of Mount Fuji. It is a spectacular volcano, but people often comment on the industrial foreground, which doesn't often feature in most beauty shots!

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Dara from Irvine, United States

SPunkt from -, Germany

Nice contrasts!
Some weeks ago I have watched a documentary on TV about the Japanese train system. That was interesting. They also talked about the train going to the national park (?) below Mt. Fuji. All the people were standing at the windows to have a good look at the volcano. Looked funny.

@SPunkt: Thanks SPunkt. I guess their train was on the more attractive side of Mt. Fuji?

SPunkt from -, Germany

I don't know because it looks attractive here, too. But they started at Shinjuku station (which is, as I have learned, the largest station worldwide - 8O - it looked so, too.).

@SPunkt: Shinjuku is very busy... don't know what train it would have been SPunkt, sorry!

Maybe the most striking Fuji-san shot I've ever seen!

Gnarf from Stockholm, Sweden

I have almost the exact same photo which I took from shinkansen as well! Except that it was a cloudy day and half mount Fuji is covered in clouds :( But you did capture it well!
