Mt. Fuji is Japan, it's easily the country's most iconic natural icon. The entire country has held it dear for millennia and it's considered sacred within Japan's Shinto religion. It's on currency and there are Kit-Kats themed around the snow-capped mountain.
Not far from Tokyo is Hakone, a beautifully mountainous region dotted with lakes and tourist towns built around seeing the famous mountain. Mountains, lakes and ferries criss-cross in front of the glorious Mt. Fuji, creating the most spectacular views of it that I have ever seen. While it's not an unobstructed view, it's preferable to the paper factories that always get in the way where I used to live in Fuji City.
While most of Hakone is very accessible by trains, buses and a ropeway, the best of Hakone and its surrounding areas are only accessible by car. The road leading up to Hakone is famous within Japan amongst driving enthusiasts. It's winding roads and gorgeous scenery attract a high concentration of sports cars and motorcycles.
But, the best view of Mt. Fuji within Hakone is from the Toyo Tires View Lounge. More specifically, the lounge's bathroom.
As soon as you open the stall door the lights dim on, the lid raises automatically and classical music starts playing. Then, as you sit down on your glorious, technologically advanced Japanese toilet, you can relax with a glorious view. Second to none.
