Not that I don't trust somebody who has lived there, but the above photo was taken in May - when the OP said they would be there and also when Greg-son said you wouldn't be able to see it...

I noticed it was may too... so Troy-son thought it was relevant!

Good catch! My bad. I presume that Greg-san's point may be that the odds are lower in that time of year, but of course I have personal experience.

At any rate, try to watch out for the radiation and the sea monsters and various other tentacled creatures which apparently abound there

Yes, the odds of seeing Fuji-san clear are very small in May. The photter in May was a bit lucky I think. I have seen it clear once or twice during the summer but usually it is cloaked in cloud for several weeks at a time from say March through November. I did wake up in the morning looking at it for 12 years. The point is the Greg-P has very limited time and cannot afford to bet on extreme long shots. Sorry for the pun.

Well, it looks like the 30 day forecasts will be accurate, cloudy weather for 8 straight days.

Fingers crossed I can get a nice picture in that won't get Cloudy Day Common Power.

It's been a great trip, unfortunately they were pretty much spot on with the weather. I only had a few moments of sunshine. Unfortunatly the storms never came, so I just ended up with clouds all day, and some light rain.

I did get one:

And as expected, the cloudy day shots aren't going to fly:
