Fact Check

We reverse searched the frames of the video to check the viral claim. On searching, we found a link to a video published on YouTube. This video has been published on JOSH RAWLIN YouTube channel “JOSH RAWLIN” on 7th April 2018. According to this channel, this video is from the famous Fuji hill of Japan. It looks exactly like the viral video that can be seen from 4.08 minutes to 4.14 minutes of the video uploaded on YouTube.
