Information

Mount Fuji ( 富士山, a.k.a. Fuji-san.) is the highest mountain in Japan at 3,776m (12,388ft). Along with Mount Tate and Mount Haku, it is one of Japan's "Three Holy Mountains" ( 三霊山 Sanreizan). An active volcano that last erupted in 1707-1708, Mount Fuji is just west of Tokyo, and can be seen on a clear day. Mount Fuji's exceptionally symmetrical cone is a well-known symbol of Japan and it is frequently depicted in art and photographs, as well as visited by sightseers and climbers.
