“White Fuji” during Winter: Mt. Fuji from the Shindo Pass

Mt. Fuji is the highest volcano in Japan and is a beautiful representative of nature, with its varied scenery changing from season to season. There are limited opportunities for us to see Mt. Fuji clearly from spring to autumn when the levels of water vapor and dust in the air increase. In the winter months, conversely, we can often see the majestic form of Mt. Fuji because of the clarity of the air. On the coldest winter days when the average temperature at the summit is 15 degrees below zero or less, Mt. Fuji shows us a solemn and sublime mountain with universal values and dignified integrity. This photo was taken from the Shindo Pass in the Misaka Mountains (Yamanashi Prefecture) located near the northern foot of Mt. Fuji. At the pass we can observe the well-balanced form of Mt. Fuji overlooking Lake Kawaguchi in the foreground.
