This is a Photo I managed to snap on a weekend trip up to Hokkaido a couple of weeks ago while flying out of Haneda airport. Reasonably clear day, great light, and just a nice touch of smog in the air to give that “city all the way to the mountain” look.
This was the first time I really realised the scale of Mt Fuji… it just towers over the landscape from this angle as opposed to seeing it from the ground where it sort of just sticks its head up above the other smaller mountains.
You can also see how Tokyo just stretches into the distance … that is where all these 35 million people live (although you completely miss Chiba in this shot).
