Mount Fuji extends over Shizuoka prefecture and Yamanashi prefecture. Mount Fuji can also be seen from Tokyo. The famous ukiyo-e (Japanese woodblock print) artists, Katsushika Hokusai and Utagawa Hiroshige, left behind many images of Mount Fuji, as observed from Tokyo (known at that time as “Edo”). We will introduce recommended spots in Tokyo where you can enjoy a view of Mount Fuji.
You May Have a Chance To See "Diamond Fuji"!

A Terrace Connected to the Station Where You Can Enjoy the View of Mount Fuji
Fujimi Terrace was selected as one of 100 sceneries of Mount Fuji in the Kanto region by the Kanto Regional Development Bureau Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism. When the weather conditions are just right, you can see Mount Fuji from between the buildings. Especially on December 18th, 19th and 25th you can see the scene of the evening sun setting behind Mount Fuji, called Diamond Fuji, which attracts many photographers. Entry to the terrace is free of charge. The entrance is on the right (west side) after you exit through the ticket gate at Higashikurume Station on the Seibu Ikebukuro Line. Also in Higashikurume city are Ochiaigawa (Ochiai River) and Minamisawa Yuusuigun (Minamisawa Springs), the only place in Tokyo selected as one of the "100 exquisite and well-conserved waters of the Heisei Period."
