Hakone (箱根町)
In 2007, I went to Japan to see Mount Fuji (富士山). Part of the tour involved a visit to Hakone (箱根町) to see Mt Fuji from the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park (富士箱根伊豆国立公園). The weather was terrible!

Late in the afternoon we ascended a chairlift (箱根ロープウェイ) from Lake Ashi (芦ノ湖), where we were supposed to enjoy a spectacular view of Mt Fuji. Instead, it was so cold and foggy that we couldn't see anything! I took this photo of the binoculars and the chairlift terminal station to demonstrate just how poor the view was. (After all, there wasn't much else to see!)

After we left, the operators decided it was pointless to continue running the service in such miserable weather, and so packed up for the day.

Hakone (箱根町) is in Ashigarashimo District in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan.
