summer sightings

I had no luck seeing a summer blue Fuji, but this image of an August sunrise, from the blog Climb Fujiyama by gives you an idea about how magjestic a close up view would have been. I really like this blog. I get a buzz thinking about how the mountain looks like that today, on days when my checking matches a posting.

Just about everything is seasonal in Japan, from clothing to stationary, postcards, food treats and the wonderful wrapping cloths. The re-occuring images for late sticky summer where fireworks, dragonflies, fans, lanterns and Blue Fuji.

Fuji is of course everywhere- although the season on billoards seems to be always early or mid Spring.
