Local diving hole

Here is a snapshot of the harbour here in Miho. As you can see, it’s pretty protected here. Of course, there is Mt. Fuji in the distance.


Apparently, this is a very popular wall of signs for tourists.  I followed the crowd and snapped this picture. Looks like a certain somewhat famous tower in Tokyo, doesn’t it? A view of Mt. Fuji from afar.

Today at school (November 13th)

I had a bit of time before my first class today so I took a few photos: This is just behind the university.  I walked about 5 minutes down the beach and took these pictures of Mt. Fuji:

Something different… (October 7th)

As the title suggests, I decided to do something different today.  I would go surfing AFTER work.  What a crazy idea – would it work?? A rare appearance by Mr. Fuji – minus the layer of snow.  I guess that there will be snow there in the next month or so.  This is my first […]

(August 21st)

Like I mentioned in a previous post, days that I can see Mt. Fuji before going to beach seem to be good surfing days.  It’s a little blurry but here’s a picture of Mt. Fuji at 4:45 am today: The big question is – Would the waves be as nice as yesterday’s?

Snaps of Mt. Fuji

Here’s a sunrise picture of Mt. Fuji from our balcony: On the road around 7:30 am, I snapped this photo: Not particularly impressive, but by the time I was close enough to take a better picture, it was covered by clouds.

June 25th surf session

Like a regular Wednesday morning, I got up at around 5:30 am and tried to leave the house quickly.  I knew that it was going to be a good day when I noticed that I could see Mt. Fuji.  I haven’t seen it for quite some time, so I quickly took this photo. I knew […]

Mt. Fuji – after the storm

Typhoon Number 4 is on the way, it rained quite heavily last night and was raining this morning when I arrived at work. By the time my first class finished, the rain had stopped and the sun came out. Here is a picture of Mt. Fuji from my desk. In the foreground you can see […]
