Mount Fuji Sports First Snow Cap of the Season

Mount Fuji is perhaps Japan's most beloved icon, and the summer climbing season welcomes thousands of visitors from all over the world. As the seasons change, the summit of Mount Fuji becomes covered in snow, which is the face of Fuji that most people are familiar with.

The season’s first snow cap on Japan’s tallest mountain was observed on October 22, 2019, 22 days later than average, and 26 days later than last year.
