Mt Fuji Eclipse

Every year in November, Japanese tourists head to Kawaguchiko (Lake Kawaguchi) where the sun sets to create a “diamond effect” similar to eclipses.
Photographers try to find the right spot — just look for the crowd and you can be sure someone has scientifically found the exact intersection point! No need to be precise though.

Fujisan is an icon of Japan and it’s nice to see it’s beauty in different ways like this.
I was lucky enough to have my iPhone 5 with me to take this video in HD.
Watch the sunlight disappear on the water. It’s an impressive natural moment in Japan.
