What are the local people in Fujinomiya like?
(Personal opinion by the website owner)

  • Broad- minded (Laid-back)
  • Chatty
  • Having a poor sense of direction (As they always see Mt. Fuji in the north, they lose a sense of direction without Mt. Fuji.)
  • They believe that Mt. Fuji looks most spectacular from Fujinomiya position.
