 “Diamond Fuji (*1)” is a phenomenon where the sun aligns with the top of Fuji Mountain when the sun rises and falls. This phenomenon can be seen from areas located to the east or west from Mount Fuji and can only be seen twice a year when the weather around Fuji Mountain is clear.

The view from SKY CIRCUS Sunshine 60 Observation Deck is very clear thus you can see “Diamond Fuji” when the sun is setting if weather conditions are good. An event titled, “Tenbodai de Camera Kyoshitsu” where the staff of the facility will give a lecture on how to take photos of Mount Fuji and beautiful night views will be held.

Let’s go to SKY CIRCUS Sunshine 60 Observation Deck and catch a glimpse of “Diamond Fuji.”
