Sunrise at Mt. Fuji, 3776 metres and bitterly cold even although it was right in the heart of summer. A golden glow breaks the horizon just before 5 o'clock and you see the sun not long after that.
The irony of the day this photo was taken is just under 3 hours later and approx. 500 kilometres away in Hiroshima the commemoration of the anniversary of the dropping of the A-Bomb was to commence. This was not lost on the thousand of Japanese that shared this view with us.
