These stunning pictures of Mt. Fuji were taken by Japanese photographer Takashi Nakazawa. These monochromatic scenes capture the quiet, clear hours around the mountain before the sun has risen.
Many say this is the perfect time to capture a snap of the iconic mountain. If you wait any longer, the atmosphere won’t be as clear and there will be too many clouds.
For Nakazawa, these photos of Mount Fuji are a message to the world.
“I hope that people around the world will know Japanese charm through my Mt Fuji photos,” he says. “And I would like them to come to Japan and actually see it.”
