Mt. Fuji

Day 9

This morning we drove three hours southwest to see Mount Fuji up close. We were lucky that the weather was fantastic and we could clearly see this famous landmark. Mt. Fuji is an active volcano and Japan's tallest peak, at 3,776 metrrs. A pilgrimage site for centuries, it’s considered one of Japan’s three sacred mountains, and summit hikes remain a popular activity. We were not able to climb up to station five as planned, since the road is still snowed over.

Our group stopped at Lake Kawaguchiko, which is one of the Fuji Five Lakes. We were blessed with a stunning view of Mt. Fuji.

We visited a typical village, ate lunch, and shopped.

After lunch, we visited an ice cave, were we had to almost crawl through tight passages. It was freezing down there. I don't have many photos since I didn't want to slip!
