PHOTO: Mount Fuji shows off its charms

August 01, 2012

THE ASAHI SHIMBUN

For those fortunate enough to be in the right spot at the right time on July 30, Mount Fuji rewarded them with a rare view: "Diamond Fuji," with the sun setting on its peak.

This photo was taken from the Hojo coast in southern Chiba Prefecture, about 110 kilometers from Japan's highest peak.

With Sagami Bay spread out before it, the 3,776-meter mountain looked magestic against the backdrop of an orange sky.

Diamond Fuji is a sight to be savored.
