It was our third visit to Japan and for the first time we were able to see Mt.Fuji from Tokyo. To be more specific: from our hotel room. We were told that, on a clear day, Fuji-san is visible from Tokyo but didn’t really believe it. On our first visit we had stopped over in Hakone, a town right next to the 3700m volcano, to catch a glimpse and saw nothing but mist and fog.
We came back to our hotel room late in the afternoon after a long day of sight-seeing and there it was basking in a beautiful sunset.
Distance? About 100km.
