Early October is too soon for Fall color in Tokyo, but at the Fuji Subaru Line 5th Station on Mount Fuji, the season is well underway. The cold air is bracing, and views of Mount Fuji's slopes are enhanced by red and yellow trees mixed with evergreens. Aokigahara Forest wraps around Mount Fuji like a blue-green skirt. In the distance you can see Lake Yamanaka and Lake Kawaguchiko, and the town of Fujiyoshida sprawls around the base of the smaller mountains across the plain.
