How to Get the Best Views of Mt. Fuji

How to Get the Best Views of Mt. Fuji
You don't have to climb Mt. Fuji to get a great view. Even from a distance, Japan's tallest mountain offers a backdrop that can’t be matched—so long as clouds don’t thwart the experience. For the best chance at a successful viewing, here are our tips.

Time of Year
To maximize your chances of catching Mt. Fuji on a clear day, try to book your trip so it falls between October and February, as colder weather means higher atmospheric visibility. Spring is also a good option, when the weather is still fairly cool. June and July are a risky time to visit, as the famed peak may only be visible for a handful of days each month.

It’s also important to remember that the mountain doesn’t stay snow-capped all year. For those looking to capture the classic image of Mt. Fuji—snow and all—winter wins. Alternatively, mid-spring cherry blossoms and colorful fall leaves can each create a stunning frame for the mountain.

Time of Day
Since cool weather means better visibility, the best time of day to see the mountain (regardless of season) is early morning. Travelers are more likely to see Mt. Fuji in full if planning a visit at 8am than if arriving in the afternoon, although the mountain is also a sight to see at sunset. Book a tour that includes a visit to the nearby Five Lakes region for the best panoramic views.
