Mt. Fuji

One of the 100 most famous mountains recognized by Japan and by Yamanashi Prefecture, Japan’s highest peak straddles the border between Yamanashi and Shizuoka prefectures. With a composite volcano shape more beautiful than any other mountain in Japan, from ancient times Mt. Fuji has mesmerized people through literature, paintings, and religion like no other mountain. The Yamanashi Prefecture side of the mountain alone bustles with some 200,000 climbers during the summer mountain climbing season. At the summit, watching the sunrise and touring the crater are particularly popular.
