Mt. Fuji from Yoshiwara District | Japan Highlights Travel, for sightseeing around Tokaido

Shizuoka Station 

[Mt. Fuji from Yoshiwara District]

The view of Mt. Fuji floating on a sea of clouds is truly amazing

Even though it takes only about 25 minutes by car from Shimizu Station, the charm of Yoshiwara, Shimizu-ku is its quiet environment abounding in nature. In the right conditions, visitors can enjoy a fantastic spectacle of Mt. Fuji floating above a sea of clouds. The phenomenon most often occurs on humid, windless days after rain. This is a fine vantage point for photographers looking for a good shot of Mt. Fuji floating above red morning clouds.
