The sunset on top of Mt. Fuji The diamond Mt. Fuji (Sep,30,2013 UP)

Just when the sun rises from and goes into the top of Mt. Fuji, a rare view that looks like a shining diamond can emerge. With Mt. Fuji combined with the shining sun, this phenomenon, called the diamond Mt. Fuji, is suitable to be described as an art created by nature.

I went to Funabashi Sanbanse Bay Park on February 16th and 17th, when the view of the diamond Mt. Fuji was expected to appear.

On February 15th, about 500 people gathered there to capture the rare moment.

Even though it became cloudy just before the sunset…

Report on February 16th.

Funabashi Sanbanse is the only place where residents have contact with the sea after Sanbanse was lost due to reclaiming the coast. From there Mt. Fuji is viewable in the background of the urban areas of Ichikawa and Urayasu beyond Tokyo Bay. Especially in the morning and evening of a fine day in winter, an excellent view of Mt. Fuji is expected to appear.

In Chiba prefecture, in addition to Funabashi Sanbanse Bay Park, there is a total of fifteen points for viewing the diamond Mt. Fuji.
