A Snapshot of Japan's Mystic Icon

All mighty Mount Fuji's staggering natural beauty is hard to ignore. Here, photographer Shinsuke Matsukawa captures the mountain in all its glory.

Snow-capped for five months of the year, Mount Fuji is about as iconic a symbol of Japan as there is. An inspiration to
artists and poets for centuries, the now-dormant, 3,776-meter volcano often appears as a painting to the naked eye. Surrounded in every direction by layers of waterways, low-lying hills and clear skies blend and evolve as each day progresses, even from as far away as the bustling streets of Tokyo, which is 100 kilometers to the northeast. — SHINSUKE MATSUKAWA
