Mount Fuji As Seen From The Sea, Japan

As Japan’s highest mountain, the legendary Mount Fuji stands 12,388 feet (3,776 meters) tall. Travellers from around the world head to Hakone National Park to see the mount Fuji, and over 1 million of them hike all the way to the top each year for the 360-degree views of Lake Ashi, the Hakone mountains, and the Owakudani Valley.

Whether you hike to the top or take it easy at the Fuji Visitor Center’s observation deck, visiting this UNESCO World Heritage site is an unforgettable experience for any traveller to Japan. If you’re not looking to climb the mountain, plenty of viewpoints and attractions are easily accessible by bus: travellers can head to the Fuji Visitor Center to explore a small museum and view exhibits covering the Fuji Five Lakes and Mt. Fuji’s cultural importance; grab a bite to eat; or catch views onto the mountain at the observation deck. Further up at 7,545 feet (2,300 meters), Mt. Fuji 5th Station offers additional unobstructed views along with shrines and souvenir shops. Both locations also serve hikers preparing for their ascent. Many travellers visit the mountain on a day trip from Tokyo (usually by bullet train), with possible side excursions for hot spring soaking, shopping, or cruising Lake Ashi.

“The scene from the Kumomi cove. Twin Rocks in the foreground is called ‘Ushitukiiwa’. Rope is tied between the rock, that’s a thing to pray for the safety of ship and port. Mount Fuji has registered as a World Cultural Heritage on June 2013.”

Kumomi Onsen is located in west-side of Izu Peninsula, Shizuoka. It is very small town but has great Onsen and beach which has a great view of Mount Fuji.

On a clear day, you can look north from the beach and see the mountain perfectly framed by the cliffs at the mouth of the harbour. Here, just a 3-minute boat ride from the quayside is a large rock outcrop that has at some time in the distant past been cleft in two. The rubble from this cataclysm has piled up on the seafloor to create a playground of swim-throughs and small caves.
