This is the countryside of Japan on the way to Mt. Fuji. Turns out Japan is mostly mountainous, which we didn't know because we spend all our time on the plains of Tokyo.
Jim is standing at the beginning of the trail from the Fifth Station. Notice the start of fall color behind him.
You can see Mt. Fuji peeking above the top of the clouds. When we were at the Fifth Station, we were totally in the clouds and could not see the top of Mt. Fuji.
