When is the best season to see

Here is interesting analysis.
The ratio of the number of days we could see Mt. Fuji from Fuji city, Shizuoka (mapped No.6) in 2018.

In January and February, it’s coldest months in Japan so traveler is not so much.
But there are so many sunny days and air is clean.

So over 70% of the month, we could see Mt. Fuji.


On the contrary, we could see only 30% of the month in summer season.
There are lots of beautiful day, but there are cloud around Mt. Fuji so we couldn’t watch well.

If you couldn’t watch Mt. Fuji, don’t be disappointed.
It is said that Mt. Fuji is hidden from our view when Mt. Fuji find a handsome guy or a beautiful woman.

Do you want to know why?
