Top Review:Azaleas In The Sky! Great Sea Of Clouds! And Mt. Fuji Over The Night Lights, Seen From Amari Mountain

Mt. Amari has an easy-hiking path able to command Mt. Fuji. You can see the glittering night view at night, and, if conditions permit, the sea of clouds in the morning. What's more, it becomes a flower field in the sky in June. You can see the wonderful colony of azalea!◎You should basically access by car, and walk 20 min on the easy-hiking path from the parking area. Though Mt. Fuji in the fist pic leaves snows, it's because for the heavy snow that year. There're fewer snows every year in this season. You need to prepare headlight or flashlight because there's no lights at night. In addition, July, the best season of azalea is a rainy season in Japan, you're lucky if it's sunny like this pic.

Shoji Lake

Address:Shoji Fujikawaguchiko-machi, Minamitsuru-gun, Yamanashi

Top Review:Reflections Born In The Morning Glow

On this day, the interesting clouds dyed orange, and the fog was rising from the lake, which was a perfect morning. Shoji Lake is not so deep, and doesn't agitate the surface, so we can often see the beautiful reflections. What's more, the sun rises from the side of Mt. Fuji, so we can take photos of morning glow. If you go on a camping trip or something, why don't you get up early and enjoy seeing the morning glow and the reflections?

And, the scenery of autumn colors and falls is breathtakingly beautiful. ◎Best season for autumn colors is from the late October to the early November. The road is bad and up-and-down, so just sneaker is not sufficient.
