Last year, the first snow was in September. I made a painting about it.

12 ( +16 / -4 )

What the deal here about snow on a scary looking volcano

It's a very nice looking volcano.

I saw the view this morning going to work. It is just a little tuffed. I love to see the first snow on Fuji San!!!

At least it is still getting snow, if not enough is done to ameliorate the effects of climate change it may come the year where there is no snowcap

Well within the "normal" range.

Sorry news source but two days ago it had snow on the peak as well as seen from Kugenuma Kaigan while surfing.

Agree with cute. This was on the news Tuesday afternoon.

I used to view Fuji-san from my balcony.

I remember last year’s first dustings...

I will cherish my memories of Fuji-san’s daily colors...

I knew the angle to the headline

What weird angle did your lonely mind conjure up from 'Mount Fuji gets season's 1st snowcap, 5 days later than last year'?

That's a pretty cool photo with Fuji looking Mount Doomish and Lake Yamanaka in the background. Looks like Zorro signed it twice top right!

Jimizo, are you that obtuse? I have conservative values in general as do most Japanese. I don't vote nor do I discuss politics because that is all a joke. Voting for corrupt politicians on both sides of the aisle? Never.

correct!! I predict if we don’t turn this around there will be global famines killing billions by the early 1970s, we will be in another ice age by 23 years ago, we will deplete the ozone by 40 years ago, we will kill everything in all the lakes and oceans with acid rain, also by 40 years ago…. And so on and so forth… we, my friend, are on the side of science.

So all we need to need to do is listen to the scientist and just do what they tell us to do and everything will be fixed. Because it’s only two weeks to flatten the curve. We got this!!!!

"Looks like Zorro signed it twice top right!"

Supplies are delivered to the top of Fuji-san by bulldozer; water, food, beer, etc. are too heavy to be carried on foot.

Japan is a country where temperatures can plunge 10 degrees Celsius and stay down resulting in t-short weather becoming coat weather in days

And thank goodness for snow because that mountain is pretty dull and bleak!

It looks lovely from a distance.

Brilliant...and don't forget economists have predicted 8 out of the last 5 recessions!

Gee 5 DAYS later than last year. What a disaster. Why am expecting to see some global warming narrative later in the article....

The first snow last year was three days earlier.

So it all evens out.
