Shizuoka, Mt. Fuji

At my back is an electronic vending machine. I believe I live in the future. What I’ve learned from the Japanese is to always think and plan ahead. Never settle for now, always the future. 

We’ve taken Tokkaido JR Line to Numazu station in Shizuoka, where Mt. Fuji is located. Well, half of it since the other half is actually in Yamanashi prefecture. It’s kind of confusing but Mt. Fuji is actually shared by two prefectures in Japan. Usually tourists get off at Mishima station for Mt. Fuji but since we have a friend living in Numazu. We met them and drive around the city.

Here I am at Numazu station before our epic trip to Lake Tanuki and Mt. Fuji! Can you count how many Mt. Fuji you can see on this set of photos?

Look at this view! It was so dreamy as it could pass as a scene from a movie?

We visited lake Tanuki for the first time. It’s my favourite out of the five lakes surrounding Mt. Fuji! Did you know that Yamanashi and Shizuoka prefecture shares Mt. Fuji? All this time I actually thought Mt. Fuji is in Shizuoka prefecture!

I have a very important announcement to make. Last March 21st when Justin visited me in Japan, he proposed to me! I magine the butterflies I’ve felt when he did that in my dream country and most favourite season, spring! Just imagine all these beautiful cherry blossoms and the love of your life in one picture, such a wonderful scene! Well, I’m glad that he did it in more private manner though he was thinking of doing it while we’re out visiting Mt. Fuji! So glad he trusted his instincts and proposed the heartfelt way.
