Mt. Fuji is one of Japan's best landmarks. Declared as World Heritage Site by UNESCO, Japan's highest peak is a source of inspiration from artists and tourists since ages. It's perfectly coned shape and often snow-capped summit has been featured in many films and works of arts. Hokusai's "36 Views of Mt. Fuji" is an example of an artist's attempt to capture the magnificence of the said mountain.

Mt. Fuji is surrounded with great places; each offers a different kind of experience in viewing the mountain. Here are the best places to see Mt. Fuji:

Take a Bullet TrainSit on the right side of the bullet train (Shinkansen) if you travel from Tokyo to Osako or Kyoto. Fuji-san will be into sight 40-50 minutes after leaving the city. Mt. Fuji will be in view for ten minutes. If you want to see more of Mt. Fuji, take the bullet train bound to Fuji's 5th station and enjoy the surroundings of the mountain. While here, cruise Lake Ashi, take the Mt. Komagatake Ropeway and ride the aerial tram going to its peak. There, you will have fantastic views of Fuji and its neighbouring valleys.

Lake KawaguchikoLake Kawaguchiko can be accessed by train and bus from Tokyo. This is a hot spring resort town visited heavily by tourists especially during November. During this month, the visitors are treated with cherry blossoms and Mt. Fuji combo. Cherry blossoms are best viewed at the seaside promenade close to Kawaguchiko Music Forest. Meanwhile, Mt. Fuji can be best viewed at the lake's eastern end.

Mt. Fuji Trekking at Sunrise. The best place to see Mt. Fuji is to climb it overnight and watch the sunrise. This is the most popular way to see and experience the mountain. However, doing this is not easy. It is suggested that you book a tour with a local guide for your safety and convenience, such as meals and accommodations.
