Mount Fuji View

Yaezu Shizuoka富士山

Japan's iconic mountain Fuji is visible in the distance.

Late 2011 was warm, so snow only crowns the peak of the mountain.

Normally, the entire mountain would be blanketed in white.

Climbing season when many climbers go to see sunrise on from the summit of Mt Fuji is long over, but still it was unseasonably warm.

The Pacific Ocean spreads out from Yaezu, in Shizuoka Prefecture, with the Izu Peninsula in the distance.
