Mount Fuji in Winter

As a final post for 2014 (maybe), I wanted to share a photo a friend submitted from Japan:

Mount Fuji from Shizuoka Prefecture

This was a photo of Mount Fuji taken from a town in Shizuoka Prefecture.

During the night of Oshogatsu (Japanese New Year), it is said that if you dream about Mount Fuji, a hawk and an eggplant, you will have great fortune during the coming year. This first dream of the year, hatsuyume (初夢), has a simple way to remember: Ichi-Fuji, Ni-Taka, San-Nasubi (一富士、二鷹、三茄子).

  1. Mount Fuji (富士)
  2. A Hawk (鷹)
  3. An Eggplant (茄子)

Hopefully some of you will at least dream about Mount Fuji now. 😉

Happy New Year Everyone!

P.S. ”C”ーちゃん、写真は送ってくださってありがとうございます。

  1. Thanks for the warm wishes and instruction before the New Year.
    I don’t believe I have ever had an eggplant dream. I’ll go to the market now and take a closer look at some so maybe they can be in my New Year dreams. I won’t make it to Fuji-san before the New Year so a photo will have to do.
    Thank you!
