How often you can see Mt Fuji clearly?
My home town is the city called Numazu, Shizuoka. The prefecture Mount Fuji is. When I go back home and stay for about 2 weeks, we may have one or two days we can see Mount Fuji without any clouds. The mountain is often hiding behind the clouds, so we can only see part of it or cannot see at all.
It is a special and beautiful mountain, and I hope you can have a chance to see it sometime in your stay!
