Mount Fuji: Urban Sights from Shimizu JR Station!
Mount Fuji is an ever-changing sight and can be caught in most interesting situations if you one corner of your eye at the horizon especially in the Fall and Winter!

Mount Fuji: Urban Sights from Suruga Ku, Shizuoka City!
Now is the season when you can see Mount Fuji clearly from Shizuoka City even from spots that are not evident for most of the year!
I had cycled a long way down Suruga Ku, the Southern half of Shizuoka City when I reached some paddy fields just beyond the last buildings before a long break in the landscape becoming more rural in spite of the recent building boom!
Mount Fuji has received a lot of snow of late and it helps for a great contrast in the distance.
Actually you have to travel a lot before the buildings stop hiding it from everyone’s view!
