Freak snowfall sets up splendid view at pagoda of Mount Fuji

posted on March 17, 2016

FUJIYOSHIDA, Yamanashi Prefecture--Clear skies hot on the heels of a freak snowfall had camera buffs and sightseers flocking to a park here March 15 to grab a magnificent shot of a pagoda with Mount Fuji in the background.

The cenotaph-pagoda in Arakurayama Sengen Park was crested with white as the area north of Mount Fuji had experienced a sudden snowfall of up to 20 centimeters the day before.

Expecting an influx of tourists wanting to catch the splendid view, seven shovel-wielding city employees started working at 8 a.m. to clear a path through the snow up the 400 steps to the pagoda.
