> Lake Kawaguchi
I don’t think so. The photograph shows Mt Fuji at sunrise so we’re looking roughly east. Lake Kawaguchi is north of Mt Fuji.
A more likely candidate is Lake Tanuki which is to the west of the mountain at about the distance shown in the photograph. The bump in the spur to the left of the mountain, the profile of the mountain top and the cleft in the side of the mountain facing us are all consistent with a vantage point near Lake Tanuki.
edit: here’s a photograph from Google Maps taken at Lake Tanuki. The profile of the land and trees in the foreground is almost identical to the original photograph so it’s likely the two photographs were taken at almost the same spot.
