Overview of Mt. Fuji

Mt. Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan, located on the border between Shizuoka and Yamanashi prefectures, with an altitude of approximately 3,776 meters.

It is a stratovolcano formed by volcanic activity that began about 10,000 years ago, and is currently inactive. Its beautiful conical silhouette is considered a symbol of Japan, and it has been revered as an object of faith since ancient times.

In 2013, it was registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site as “Mt. Fuji – an object of worship and a source of art,” and it is highly valued not only for its natural beauty but also for its cultural value.

Mt. Fuji has had a great influence not only on Japan’s natural beauty, but also on culture and art.

Mt. Fuji, which shows different expressions throughout the seasons, continues to provide endless inspiration to painters, photographers, and poets. In addition, the sight of Mt. Fuji illuminated by the sunrise or sunset has provided a special impression for many people.

Being able to see it from Tokyo on a clear day is a small happiness in everyday life, and will become an unforgettable memory for those who visit.
