Fuji from Fujimizaka Slope in Nippori, in the Tokyo neighborhood, on Tuesday, November 13, 2012..There are a number of hills in Tokyo named Fujimizaka, literally “Slope with a view of Mt. Fuji,” but the construction of tall buildings has made it increasingly difficult to actually see Mt. Fuji from these slopes..Fujimizaka in Nippori is said to be the only hill of the name in central Tokyo from where people can still see Mt. Fuji. Many spectators gathered here today for a glimpse of the sun setting near the mountain’s peak,.which creates a sparkling phenomenon known as “Diamond Fuji.” (Photo by Yusuke Nakanishi/AFLO)
