Waking Up To Mt. Fuji in Kamakura

Gorgeous pink Mt. Fuji viewed from a hotel room window

In late February I visited Kamakura to see Mt. Fuji under the blue sky. Unfortunately, when I arrived at Kamakura Prince Hotel it was already dark and stormy, so I couldn't see anything on the first day. On the next day, I happened to wake up very early at 6 A.M.. I closed my eyes to return to sleep, then remembered I was in Kamakura to see Mt. Fuji! I jumped out of my bed, opened the curtains and found A PINK MOUNT FUJI! 'Is this so-called Aka-Fuji (Red Fuji)?', I wondered. In fact I didn't care if it was red or pink. I grabbed my camera and took many photos of it. To my dismay the sky was hazy and the view was unclear. Nonetheless I was happy to have fulfilled my purpose - to see Mt. Fuji!

I was born in and grew up in Tokushima prefecture, and have lived in many places since then: Nishinomiya, Kyoto, Nara, Mie, Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama, Chiba, Fukuoka and Fukui. I am currently living in Yokohama City. All the places I lived, all the places I visited, I have loved dearly. The historical places where people lived, loved, suffered, and fought - places where I can still hear their heartbeats - mesmerize me. I'd like to retrace the footsteps of the people who lived in Japan a long long time ago, and introduce to you what they left behind on this soil.
