Oh, it's beautiful after all!
There is not much in between Mitsutouge and Fuji-san, so on a clear day you might think you would get a great view. Fuji-san is certainly very big from Mitsutouge but the problem is that in winter the sun sits over Fuji-san at around noon, which is also when you reach the summit. This makes it impossible to get as clear a shot as one would like. On this amazingly clear day James gave it a go from part way up Mitsutouge. In summer of course, the air is much thicker, so the solution would seem to be to stay overnight at a hut on the summit, and do the sunrise thing...
