Tea fields and Mt. Fuji. This is a popular spot for taking photographs, with irreplaceably beautiful scenery that spreads out in front of you. There is nothing here that will obstruct your view of these two photogenic subjects. The green carpet that exudes life force, and the tranquil expanse of nature can be captured on camera just as they are, and are often used as a symbol of Japan in TV commercials and company ads.
