Mt. Fuji | A Must Visit If You Come To Japan

Mt. Fuji A Must Visit If You Come To Japan

If you’re new to this blog, irasshaimase! (Read: Welcome!). I’m a Malaysian who is battling Japan deadly train rush hour every day to got to work hence you would see a lot of Japan contents until the time for me to leave Japan for good come. Today I’m going to write on my trip to Mt. Fuji, a must visit if you come to Japan so last week, my friend and I decided to go and see the magnificent Mt. Fuji in its glory. Both of us have never seen the famous landmark of Japan as she lives in Hokkaido and I just moved recently from Himeji.

We booked our car online from Nippon Rent-A-Car (100% recommend if you plan to travel around Japan using a car) English website here. We picked up the car at Kamata Station and off to Shizuoka Prefecture with high spirit of wanting to see the traditional Japan Pagoda building and cherry blossoms adorning the area only to find the cherry blossoms are nowhere to be seen and only bare trees welcoming us.

Major face palm moment because I didn’t check the sakura forecast beforehand. In Tokyo, the cherry blossoms have bloomed so I naively thought that all of the other places nearby have too.

 

Me looking for cherry blossoms

None.

My heart hurts.

 

Anyway, the view is still beautiful even without cherry blossoms and I’m going to Mt. Fuji again during Golden Week to watch tulips so I’m good.

Enjoy the photos below!

  1. As always, your post & pictures are so gorgeous 😍 I’ve only been to the Mt. Fuji area once, and I only stayed at the base. I would love to try hiking up it in the future. It sucks that you couldn’t find any blossoms — but maybe next time! 😊 And please don’t hesitate in posting more Japan posts because I love every single one you put up!

    1. Thank you! I feel content just by watching Mt. Fuji from afar, hiking would be too err tiring lol. Thank you for the comment Zoei! x
