Mt.Fuji and cloud

Cloud may appear when we see Mt.Fuji in southwestern direction of Yamanakako. Because Mt.Fuji is treasure house of clouds which are rare alone at peak, and wind including moisture hits directly, characteristic cloud which is not seen in other mountains area appears. When Kasagumo in particular and rotor cloud occur, it is said to be signature of bad weather approach and predicts weather in form of cloud at the foot saying "we have rain if Kasagumo and rotor cloud appear". Actually, by observation of Lake Kawaguchi meteorological observatory (the 2003 closure), probability that it rained within 24 hours when Kasagumo appeared considerably becomes higher with 70% degree. There are just many types of Kasagumo, too, for example, in Kasagumo (kasagumo) "pile up shade" "leave; when shade" appears, is said that beautiful weather (energy) continues strictly cold ekomiga, and there is Kasagumo which is high probability that we do not have rain in.
