This was a quick trip to Japan.
And, of course, a quick trip to Japan must include a ride on the famously-fast Shinkansen trains.
We left Kyoto and took the train as close as we could get to Mount Fuji. And then, being the adventurous driver that I am, we drove the hour or so from the train station to our resort near Mount Fuji.
And being the crazy photographer that I am, I awoke at 5am to capture sunrise at Mount Fuji. I was blessed with good weather that morning, and the resulting photo is the lead photo above.
After Ayla woke up a few hours later, we returned the car and resumed the train trip into Tokyo. (And we’ll save Tokyo for another post.)
Footnote: I posted this article on 9 August 2019, but have backdated it to fit the timeline from when I was in Japan.
