Day 178/365: Me and My Done Meet Mount Fuji

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.... :-)

Oh what great photos, glad you are both having a good time. The KD is a bit 'ordinary' but didn't detract from the scenery, so perfect for the occasion (as KD always is!!).

They are great photos. And the jumper? Well best not to comment on that.
