Mount Fuji as seen from the sea

“The scene from the Kumomi cove. Twin Rocks in the foreground is called ‘Ushitukiiwa’. Rope is tied between the rock, that’s a thing to pray for the safety of ship and port. Mt.Fuji has registered as a World Cultural Heritage on June 2013.”

Kumomi Onsen is located in west-side of Izu Peninsula, Shizuoka. It is very small town, but has great Onsen and beach which has great view of Mt. Fuji.

On a clear day you can look north from the beach and see Mt. Fuji perfectly framed by the cliffs at the mouth of the harbor. Here, just a 3-minute boat ride from the quayside, is a large rock outcrop that has at some time in the distant past been cleft in two. The rubble from this cataclysm has piled up on the sea floor to create a playground of swim-throughs and small caves.
