This is the view of the Japan Alps from Kawaguchiko (I think) 5th Station on Mt. Fuji. This is the highest point along Mt. Fuji that can be reached by driving, some 2300 meters high.

The Japan Alps is the mountain range that runs along the backbone of mainland Japan. Our tour guide also referred to this as the 1000 alps range.

It was super cold at this point, even though we were only about 1/2 way up the mountain. The white stuff on the trees in the foreground is snow.

This is a hand-held panorama consisting of 27 individual captures. The full size image in PS format is 1.2 gb. This had to be scaled down for upload to flickr.
