Mt.Fuji as seen from Inamuragasaki point (Kamakura)
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.
