Japanese Zen Garden - Shizuka Mt. Fuji (Interior)

Enjoy Mt. Fuji at home!

Mt Fuji is one of the most loved mountains in Japan. Many artists have chosen the mountain as the subject of their paintings. Hokusai (1760-1849) painted Mt. Fuji reflected on the lake. Although the view, called "Sakasa Fuji (inverted image of Mt Fuji reflected on the water)", has long been admired by Japanese, it is a rare opportunity to be able to view the clear and panoramic "sakasa Fuji" image.
