Photographer's Note

Mt. Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan and it’s well known as a symbol of Japan with its beautiful shape. Climbing up to the top of Mt. Fuji and pray the sunrise on the top is one of things that people want to do before die in Japan and also recently has got to be one of poplar attractions for tourist from foreign country especially from North America, Australia and Europe. The climbing season is only a month from July to August so that Mt. Fuji is very crowd with people. It is very tough work to climb up the mountain because of that there are so many people like busy street in the city, many small rocks on the path bother your steps, strong wind blow and thunder attacks sometime and big difference of temperature between hot and cold in the thin air take your power away. Most of tourist from Asia especially from china loves going to outlet shopping mall in Gotenba at the foot of Mt. Fuji. They do shopping a lot here with Mt. Fuji on their back.

The tree in the picture grown on the shopping mall is Japanese pine tree which we have a culture that the tree is the symbol of youth and ageless.

I can see the world’s economy here.
