All night long the rain storm kept going – at 7 am we looked out of our hotel room windows AND THERE HE WAS! With 12,388 ft Japan’s highest mountain, the perfect example of a strato volcano, snow-capped and most impressive: Fuji-san, the country’s most famous mountain!
Of course we had to go for a 74 mile ride around it to see it from every angle – not everyone is so lucky! The road went from 1968 ft altitude to 9,920 ft, lots of turns and hardly any traffic! We stopped by the Hiraito Waterfalls and the Fujisengen Shrine and took many pictures of these absolutely stunning sights. A great afternoon ride!
