Mount Fuji

Mount Fuji is the most recognizable landmark in Japan. Mount Fuji located about 100 km (60 mi) west of Tokyo is an almost perfect volcano venerated by the Japanese, who call it Fuji-san - their most sacred mountain.

The Mount Fuji volcano is dormant - last eruption was in 1707 - and it is a popular tourist attraction. In the summer people enjoy going to the summit to see the dawn and at night the light from their torches looks like a trail of lava on the mountainside.

The main climbing season is during July and August. The crater takes about an hour to walk around. Ity is cold up there - the summit, which is 3,776 m (12,340 ft) high, is snow-covered between October and May.
