Mount Fuji and Lake Ashi

I've been to Lake Ashi in Hakone several times over the last few years, but last Sunday was the first time I was able to see Mount Fuji from the lake. On previous visits, it had always been obscured behind cloud cover. Of course, it was partially obscured by clouds this time, too, but at least I could actually see the mountain this time.

Lake Ashi is where Biollante makes her first appearance in Godzilla vs. Biollante (1989), and I think we're all familiar with Mount Fuji's role in various monster movies (such as King Kong vs. Godzilla). So there's quite a bit of kaiju history on display in just one shot!
