Discover Mount Fuji Japan

Mount Fuji or Mount Yama is highest point in Japan, and rises to an altitude of 12,385 feet. It lies 60 miles south-west of Tokyo and on a bright day, you can see it from the capital. It is an extinct volcano whose last eruption dates back to 1707. With its perfect symmetry, this mountain is sacred to the Japanese. It is actually a venue for several pilgrimages. The climbing of Mount Fuji is a year long activity. However, in the heart of winter, it is reserved for experienced sportmen only. On the north flank of the mountain you will find the five Fuji lakes. Here you will find areas for water sports and amusement parks. Lovely views of the Fuji mountain guaranteed.
