The orange and blue of sunset near Mt. Fuji had a beach goers and surfers transfixed. After a wonderful day spent with friends in Kamakura, we ended our temple marathon at this beautiful beach with one of the most incredible landscapes any of us could have imagined. Such an iconic mountain framed is such a stunning way, we were all happy to spend the golden hour watching surfers as the clouds were illuminated by the fading, shifting light of sunset. Highballs in hand and scarfs wrapped tightly around us, we shared this definitively "Japanese" vista with some of our favorite people to bump into while traveling. Japan is an incredible country that I look forward to visiting again some day. I just wonder if such a scene with such great company is a repeatable circumstance. I worry that it is not, but I'm willing to give it a go.
