Beyond the vast waving water of Sagami bay, the snow-capt peak of Mt. Fuji rises sharply against the pure azure sky.

Fortunately, thanks to the intense coldness and dryness in the deep of winter, the ambient air is so transparent that I can clearly see the divine spectacle of the sacred mountain and the shining sea in the far distance.

This magnificent view awakes me to the innermost admiration for the sublimity beyond human understanding and for the universe filled with such boundless wonders.

The sun is sinking slowly beyond the calm sea, tinting the western sky and the woolly clouds with a varying rosy flush.

Just before nightfall, the noble silhouette of Mt.Fuji stands out clearly against the golden sunset glow.

Since ancient times, this holy mountain has earned the heartfelt faith and worship of Japanese people and has been respected as the highest spiritual symbol of Japan.

In the low voice of the wind gently blowing across the sea, I hear the earnest prayers which have been sincerely offered to Mt.Fuji by Japanese people.
