Wallpaper from space : Fuji-mount

If you are a manga reader, an anime watcher or simply a Japan lover, you will absolutely know the Mount Fuji. It’s the Japan’s highest mountain (3776 m.a.s.l). Mount Fuji is part of the Unesco World Heritage List as a cultural asset (the 13th in Japan) for inspiring artists, poets and religious pilgrims (*). This mysterious mount is usually surrounded by clouds, so japanese people consider anyone who can get a clear view of it as lucky.

Since my early childhood, this mountain catches my eye. Indeed, when I used to watch « Detective Conan » anime and their mysterious murders in Fuji, I was hoping to have wings and fly above it and see it. Sentinel-2 satellite made this dream come true by allowing me to have a detailed view of it.
