Snapshots of Modern Japan: 06

Mount Fuji in the distance, over Tokyo. Taken from the shinkansen.

This is a simple one: a shot of Mount Fuji, one of Japan’s most recognizable icons, over the outskirts of Tokyo. Many Japanese cities aren’t very pretty and the contrast of natural beauty and urban sprawl is visually fascinating. Every country has this to a certain extent, but I think Japan’s crowded landscape of concrete and exposed wires makes it particularly striking.
