The truth is, a short-stay traveller in Japan is pretty lucky to get to see Mount Fuji in winter because it can often be covered in cloud. As the Lonely Planet says, it's a "notoriously shy mountain". But Fuji-san must have known I was coming in my Ken Done today because it was out in all its *glory*!Check out the truly spectacular scenery in the Hakone region, on Lake Ashi.
And before it all gets too Zen, or I begin to panic that my rather *awful* beige and blue Ken Done jumper may be the only thing out of place in this serene scene... along comes a Pirate Ship! I'll say it again: Thank You Japan for your delightful cross-stylings! Today ends up being a *perfect* day to wear such a strange Ken Done fleecy jumper (that I joyously found in a Penrith op-shop). So this Done has made its own pilgrimage from the foot of the Blue Mountains to the foot of Mount Fuji.... :-)
