Mt fuji thru the SEASONS
Mt Fuji sits across Yamanashi and Shizuoka Prefectures.
The portion of Mt Fuji in Shizuoka Prefecture is known as Omote-fuji. This western side of the mountain leads into a plateau area.......
while the Yamanashi Prefecture side of Mt Fuji unfolds into the Fuji Five Lake area.
Gotemba, Hakone, and their surrounding sightseeing areas lie to the southeast.
Throughout the year, you can enjoy outdoor sports and other leisure activities, hot springs, and of course, hiking on Mt Fuji itself.
When the snow thaws in May, cherry blossom flowers explode around the mountain and wild birds can be seen.
June is the rainy season for much of Japan, but because the peak of Mt Fuji usually rests well above the clouds, you can still gain impressive views of the mountain even when the base of the mountain is obscured.
The climbing season for Mt Fuji begins around the middle of July, and usually continues into the beginning of August.
During this time, the weather is much more stable in comparison to other months, but the area still experiences extreme variances in temperature which frequently give way to thunder and lightning.
By the end of August, the long rainstorms of autumn have started, and in September, the first snowfalls on the mountain peak can be seen.
After the brilliant, fiery colors of the fall season, Mt Fuji returns to its classic coat of white for the duration of the quiet winter.
