It was on a fine breezy morning early in the year (January 10) that we first saw the land of Japan proper. Approaching it from Hong Kong, and by the southern route, which passes among the solitary Loo-choo Islands, the lordly and beautiful Fuji-yama rose up before us long before any other land was visible. Like a vast and splendid temple, it stood high above the ocean-plain, white with snow, and glittering in the sun. I shall have many occasions hereafter for speaking in admiration of this wondrous object, and will therefore only remark here that if ones memories of Japan were destined to fade one by one, I believe the very last to disappear would be that of Fuji-san, as first seen from the sea, at a distance of nearly one hundred miles.
