Mt Fuji views from airplane.

Hii !!!

I read on japan-guide that one can view Mt Fuji from an airplane when arriving in Tokyo from the Western side.

I am flying in to Tokyo from Singapore, and wanted advise on whether to be seated on the left or right side of the airplane to have the best views of Mt Fuji. Presumably the airplane routes are standard and someone can guide on this.

Of course, I understand that the views are subject to cloud cover/weather conditions, but just wanted to know whether the left or right side has a better likelihood of viewing Mt Fuji.

From East-Asia, seat to left side while toward Tokyo, be ready around 30 min before landing. But you need to take care of aircraft wings which may block your view.
