On a flight from San Francisco to Singapore (with a layover in Seoul), reddit user mrmonkey86 was able to enjoy this stunning view of Mount Fuji poking out above the clouds.
Mount Fuji, located on Honshu Island, is the highest mountain in Japan at 3,776.24m (12,389 ft). An active stratovolcano that last erupted in 1707–08, Mount Fuji lies about 100 kilometres (60 mi) south-west of Tokyo and can be seen from there on a clear day. Mount Fuji’s exceptionally symmetrical cone is snow-capped several months a year. [source]
