Mt Fuji

Mt Fuji

The iconic image of Japan and captured in numerous works of art and poetry, the perfectly symmetrical cone of Mount Fuji has been admired and revered for centuries by the Japanese and visitors alike. At 3,776 metres in height, it is Japan’s tallest mountain, and an active volcano (the last eruption was 1707), set amongst the beautiful panoramas of the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park, as well as one of Japan’s three holy mountains. Made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2013, Fuji is notorious for having its peak in the clouds but on a clear day, you can admire its inspiring peak all the way from Tokyo!
