How to Take Mount Fuji Aerial View Photos in Japan?

I actually missed my flight from Tokyo to Cebu. Do you know how expensive the flight was? It was PHP 18,000 when I wanted to book for the next day flight. Unfortunately, I never had that much money to return to Cebu.

So I looked for other ways to get out of Japan ASAP and found a flight to Hong Kong after two days worth JPY 6,000++. That means I had to sleep two nights at Narita airport for free.

It was a morning flight so I made sure not to miss this flight again. I needed to transfer to another terminal. Fortunately, I boarded the flight.

The crew put me on the window seat, onto the left side of the airplane. Somehow, I regretted not seeing Mount Fuji when I was on land. Heard the pilot talking and told the passengers to open their windows to see the view of Mount Fuji. It was a surprise!

I Cried While Up In the Air

After all the crazy misadventures I’ve experienced in Japan, I actually cried up in the air. I hurriedly took out my camera and my iPad taking a lot of photos. Not sure if I was able to take videos.

Which airline to take to see the aerial view of Mount Fuji?

I am not affiliated and not promoting this airline but I actually booked a flight to Hong Kong with Jetstar Asia. Pure luck that I was able to get it for JPY 6000++ or PHP 3,000++ and compared to flying back to Cebu for PHP 18,000. Since I am a digital nomad, I had no worries extending my trip to Hong Kong and stayed for another four days.

Best to book a flight in the morning! Thank me later.

Is it all worth it?

Definitely, the experience was all worth it. You can add this to your itinerary if you want to jump from one country to another. Yes, take a flight to Hong Kong from Tokyo.
