If you’re a fan of Mt. Fuji, you’re going to love this. Twice a year, in May and August, the sun aligns so that it sets exactly on top of Mt. Fuji. When the sun begins to sink into the summit, it shines like a diamond, hence the nickname “Diamond Fuji.”

When you can see Diamond Fuji depends on where you view it from – and Minamiboso is the perfect place. Here is a list of dates and locations to view the rare and dazzling Diamond Fuji in Spring 2019.
