Day Trip to Fujikawaguchiko

After visiting Yokohama and Hakone, we did a quick stop at Fujikawaguchiko.  Got there early afternoon, had lunch there, spent the rest of the afternoon there, woke up really early to catch the beautiful clear skies to see Mt. Fuji, and started our drive back to Tokyo in the morning to make our lunch reservation.

We were very fortunate because on the first day we were there, the skies were quite grey and the weather wasn’t very clear.  We had to do many things fast because sunset was very early in Japan in the winter – the skies were pitch black by around 4:30pm, so when we got there in the early afternoon, it didn’t really give us enough time to do many sightseeing, let alone see Mt. Fuji anymore.
