Second Try


This is a photo of Arahata Fujizuka, the man-made mountain. I was there again (previous post) in hopes to see Mt. Fuji from the top.

But although it was a great day and we could actually see it slightly with our eyes...my camera couldn't catch it. I really wished I could of shown how it was looming quietly above the trees.


Since I couldn't catch Mt. Fuji on my camera, I'm also including the picture of Mt. Fuji drawn on the sign at the top of Arahata Fujizuka. It shows that Mt. Fuji is 3776.3 meters tall.

Better luck next time...

We will pretend we saw it!
Nice try, Kaori!

Lois said...

I am going to imagine that I see it there!

Dear Kaori,
I have a non-photo related question: do you know if the book '告白' has been translated in English? I just saw the movie and I'm absolutely in awe with it.

Thank you.

I see it in my mind's eye. :)

Love the close up on those leaves too!

We'll be patiently waiting for your next try. I'm sure that will be successful!

If you come to New Zealand, we have a mountain just like mt Fuji.

Becky said...

I really love the perspective on that top photo. Great catch!

Evelyn said...

It's great that you saw it.

I'm sorry to hear that...
But at least you had fun climbing the man-made hill.

Maybe a clear windy day would do it, Kaori... In the meantime maybe we will have to make do with something like this to get a gist...

@Kiki: I just did an Amazon search of the novelist who wrote “Confession.” Her name is Kanae Minato. I’m sorry to say there were no matches at Amazon. For a book in Japanese that was published in 2008 and became a hot movie in 2010 to come out in an English translation almost instantly is a rarity. Please keep checking her name (again, it is: Kanae Minato). I suspect there is a translation in progress. Let’s be patient.

I haven’t seen that movie (it is in my Netflix queue) but I really like the actress Takako Matsu (maybe ever since I saw her in “April Story” made in 1998. Not to mention ”Villon’s Wife”).
