                Every summer, thousands of tourists climb to the summit, to witness
The sunrises from there.  A beautifully proportioned volcanic cone in a spectacular
Natural setting, mount Fuji is beloved for its symmetrical beauty as well.
 It is very popular subject in Japanese art, especially in spring, when the snow- covered
 Mountain is framed by pink cherry blossoms.

In four stages of volcanic activity. It erupted last
 on December 16th  1707. It is still an active volcano.
