Mount Fuji and lake, Yamanashi prefecture
Mount Fuji (Fuji-san) is the highest mountain in Japan at 3,776 meters, and one of Japan's "Three Holy Mountains" (Sanreizan). It is surrounded by five lakes.
An active volcano that last erupted in 1707–08, Mount Fuji is located near the Pacific coast of central Honshu, just west of Tokyo, from where it can be seen on a clear day.
Its exceptionally symmetrical cone is a well-known symbol of Japan, frequently depicted in art and photographs, and visited by sightseers and climbers.
