Mount Fuji



Mount Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan at 3,776.24 m.  It lies about 100 km south-west of Tokyo, and can be seen from there on a clear day.

The exceptionally symmetrical volcanic cone, snow-capped for several months a year, has become a well-known symbol of Japan and it is frequently depicted in art and photographs. Indeed, it was added to the World Heritage List as a Cultural Site in June 2013 in recognition of the inspiration it has granted to artists and poets.
