The Usual View of Mt. Fuji


These are wishes tied to branches halfway up Sengen Jinja hill where there is a view of Mt. Fuji. This is what you usually see at this spot, directly facing Fuji-san. No mountain. But after you see it once, you know it's there and that changes the way you see the clouds hiding it.

Amazing! Thanks to your little write-up, I'm seeing the clouds differently too. Thanks,

Absolutely true, and, man, is it hard to see Mt. Fuji from Okinawa!

First, you see a mountain; then, there is no mountain; then there is.
