Tadaima Japan

Mt.Fuji is alsways here in Susono city. My recommendation is “JA Fureai Market” where you can buy fresh vegetables from Mt.Fuji. The best part is that you can see the people who produced the vegetables. Vegetables are all so fresh, and you may want to bite them right away. It’s also fun to take pictures of Mt.Fuji today. Mt.Fuji has great and mystical energy.
