Mt. Fuji

Mt. Fuji is Japan's highest mountain, known
throughout the world for its beauty. It is 3,776 meters high, located almost in the middle of Japan, and in the past erupted frequently. Since 1707 volcanic activity has ceased, but geologically it is a dormant volcano.
Fuji-san has been an object of worship since ancient times. In the Edo Period (1603-1867) in particular, it was frequently climbed as an expression of faith.
Its grandeur and beauty have fascinated many Japanese artists, who have left behind outstanding works of art. There is, for example, the outstanding work called the "Fugaku Sanjurokkei" by the ukiyoe artist KATSUSHIKA Hokusai, which contains masterpieces like "Akafuji" that are known throughout the world.
