Tembo One's Japan Travel Pics

Most people when discussing Japan travel immediately think of Mount Fuji.
So, to start with, here are five pictures taken from a pathway on the north shore of Lake Kawaguchiko near to the Oishi Natural Living Centre.

Getting a clear day for pictures like this is exceptional. It took three visits to Japan for Fuji-san to co-operate!

I'm adding another picture to this sequence as it is relevant for many who visit Japan.
While not everyone visiting Japan is so fortunate as to be able to visit Mt. Fuji anyone travelling on the main Shinkansen line south from Tokyo often gets a good if distant view. The attached picture was taken on the 6.00am train from Yokohama to Hiroshima abot 20minutes into the journey travelling at about 150mph.

Climbing Mt. Fuji by car; a rare experience!

One of the huge advantages of visiting Japan multiple times is the increasing ability to understand how to get around and experience the country as few overseas travellers are fortunate enough to.

The attached photos were taken on Mt. Fuji at the 5th Station just above the 7,500 ft level after driving up the singing toll road from Kawaguchiko. Look it up on you-tube. The road has grooves which the car tyres "play" like a musical instrument as you drive over them!
