In Japan, a phenomenon in which the moon overlaps the top of Fuji is called "Pearl Fuji." I went to Lake Tanuki to capture Pearl Fuji, I knew the full moon would rise from the top of Fuji on this very day. Fortunately, the water surface was very calm and I could capture such perfect reflections.
Location: Lake Tanuki, Fujinomiya City, Shizuoka Pref., Japan
