Everyone hopes to get a good view of Fuji at some point in their Japan trip. We’ve had an embarrassment of riches.

We got off the train in Odewara at about 12:30 and a couple of hours later we were on the Hakone Ropeway soaring above the trees headed for spectacular views of Mount Fuji. We were not disappointed.

Thinking we’d continue to get more great photo opportunities of the mountain, we took the pirate ship sightseeing cruise over Lake Ashi. I got a couple of nice shots from there, especially as the sunset turned one side of the mountain pink, but the views were much better from the ropeway.

I’ll be posting more of my photos on my travel site in a few days, but here’s a preview of coming attractions :). Today we plan to relax and soak in the onsen before heading home tomorrow.
