Fujimieki | the fine art of spotting Mt. Fuji from train stations

Combine trainspotting with a love for Mt. Fuji and you’ve got Fujimieki, or train stations where you can see Mt. Fuji. There is a subset of train aficionados that get their kicks from either photographing Mt. Fuji from train stations, or from an actual trin – either is fair game.

Did you know that there are 678 train stations where you can see Mt. Fuji from? It’s true. In fact, there is a website (JP) dedicated to archiving every trains station with views of Mt. Fuji, and the corresponding photographic evidence.
