If you were on JL315 yesterday you would have seen Fuji from the Port side. I leave it to you to look at other flights and dates.

Looking at Flighradar24, today’s flights and flights for the past week, route to the north of Mount Fuji, therefore Mount Fuji passes on the left hand side of the plane. This seems to be a “standard” route between HND-FUK, however hopefully someone who has taken this flight can chime in. I’ve taken a flight in the opposite direction between FUK-HND and we routed to the south of Mount Fuji and the left hand side was the side to see Mount Fuji.

You could also check the window view photos on Jetphotos.com and Airliners.net to see if there are any photos taken on HND-FUK flights showing Mount Fuji.

Both Flighradar24 and sites like Jetphotos and Airliners are good for planning if you like window seats and want to get an idea what is along your route.

Hopefully someone who has taken a flight on this route can provide some first hand info.

JAL has a predictor though it notes actual flight route may differ

Thank you.
I have not booked my flight yet, but it will be a morning flight (before 9-ish). The map helps as well.

Appreciate the info. I will take a looking at Jetphotos and Airliners later. I was not aware of these 2 web sites.
Thanks.

I recall the two times I flew to India from Tokyo (NRT-DEL; HND-BOM), the route was to the north of Mt. Fuji.
One time I was lucky enough to capture this image shown below:
