What are the Odds I'll See Snowcap on Mt. Fuji in early/mid November?

Jump to last reply

So I leave for Japan in 2 1/2 weeks and am very excited. One of the things I am most excited to see is Mt. Fuji. There are 3 things I've seen on my travels thus far that I know made my jaw drop in amazement at first sight: the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Pisa, and the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul. I have admired beautiful pictures of Mt. Fuji for several decades and am anticipating this will be the 4th.

Now I know that Mt. Fuji is an elusive creature and I should consider myself lucky if I see even a glimpse of it. I am hoping that by choosing November for my travels (primarily to see the beautiful fall colors all around Honshu) that my chances for clear weather increase vs. the summer. My 3 locales for potentially seeing Fuji are from a Tokyo skyscraper, from the Shinkansen on my way back to Tokyo from Hiroshima, and my best bet from my two days spent touring Hakone.

Now here is my question. Not only do I want to see Fuji but I am greedy and so want to see it with a snow cap. I will be in Tokyo on November 7-9, in Hakone on Nov. 10 and 11, and then traveling back from Hiroshima to Tokyo via Shinkansen on Nov. 20. What are the odds that I'll have generally clear views of Fuji during those times and also, what are the odds there will be snow cap on the mountain? I just viewed a fall colors trip report from Fujisan on japanguide.com and as of Oct. 14, the mountain summit looked completely snowless.
