I was told that the best view of Fuji City and Mt. Fuji together was from the highest floor of one of the two City Hall buildings.  I've been waiting for a clear day to go and take a look.  Yesterday was that day. Fuji Panorama

Not the clearest day I've seen, but still, a great view.  On days like this I can see Fuji-san pretty much everywhere I go and it's awesome.  Also, while it doesn't look like much, this is probably the better looking side of town.  Pretty much off to the sides of the picture in almost all directions there are paper factories spewing out steam and tall apartment buildings.  So I definitely agree that this is the best view in town.


Mt. Fuji from my apartment This is the view of Mt. Fuji from the parking lot of my apartment building, taken this morning.  This is probably the second day in the week that I've been in Fuji that I've gotten a clear view of Mt. Fuji, which probably made it all the more spectacular when I saw it on my way to work.

A post about my first days teaching and a tour of my apartment to come.
