3,776 Meters of Awesome that I Didn’t See, Then Some Stuff that I Did

The second day I was in Japan, we went to a small town at the base of Mt. Fuji.

Mt. Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan. Here is a picture of it.

Yeah, it was super foggy that day. So we couldn’t see the mountain at all, all 3,776 meters of it. Devastating.

But we did take this little ropeway up with these hilarious little cartoon animals:

And we basked in the cherry blossoms on the shore of the lake (Lake Kawaguchiko):

And we had some delicious ice cream (again accompanied by adorable cartoons):

And Japan’s most comprehensive gem museum (Yamanashi Gem Museum) happened to be on the shore of the lake, so we went there too. It was full of lovely shinies. 🙂

(Those are emeralds – some of my favorites, along with amethyst.)

So even though we couldn’t see the mountain, it was still a lovely day with the wonders that Japan has to offer.
