Tokyo & Mt. Fuji


Getting around Tokyo

We began our adventure to fit 3 weeks of Japan into 9 days, starting in Tokyo, one of the most well-connected public transportation systems in the world. We were amazed by the lack of noise pollution in Japan. The packed subways and rails were often accompanied with silence.

Sensō-ji Temple

Tokyo, Japan

First on our trip was Tokyo’s oldest buddhist temple, Senso-ji Temple, dedicated to Kannon. in the Asakusa district. Right outside of the gates is the Nakamise-dori - a well-known shopping street.

Mt. Fuji

Fujikawaguchiko, Japan

We ventured out into a more remote area of Japan - Fujikawaguchiko, a small town on the foothills of Mount Fuji. We went around the town trying to capture as many different angles and views of Fuji in a few hours as we could. The most interesting views came from a rural village on the outskirts of town, Oshino Hakkai. But the clearest view came at the end of the day on the northern shore of Lake Kawaguchiko.
