View Of Mount Fuji From Enoshima

Over the next few days, I am going to present some photography taken from the photo album I purchased 20 years ago in Utsunomiya-shi, Tochigi-ken, Japan. These photographs are from the 1930s, and are, as far as I know, all original... you can see the silver tincture in the photos.

The photograph above is taken from Enoshima of the epic Mount Fuji mountain in the background across the crashing waves.

Enoshima (江の島) is an island about four (4) kilometers in circumference..and is part of the city of Fujisawa.

It is linked to the mainland by a 600-meter long bridge, and is accessible, amongst other modes, by train.

Enoshima was purchased by British merchant Samuel Cocking through his Japanese wife from the Japanese government back in 1880. He developed a beautiful botanical gardens, which remains to this day a tourist attraction with some 500,000 visitors yearly.
