Fujisan (富士山) and off to Korea

We flew to Seoul this morning...had to wake up terribly early to get to the airport and catch the flight, but it was worth it to catch this shot of Mt. Fuji from the airplane as we headed off to Korea.

We left from Haneda Airport instead of making the long trek out to Narita, which was good in terms of saving time traveling to the airport, but it is pretty clear that renovation is a low priority at the International terminal!

Anyway, this is the sunrise from my balcony this morning. This picture does not do it justice...it was very nice. And that is Mt. Fuji on the right, with considerably fewer clouds than usual.

It is colder here than in Tokyo...the low tonight will be below freezing. I went for a walk just after sunset and it seemed like you could feel the temperature falling! It's a good thing I like cold weather!
