Mount Fuji


For those of you who did not know, Mount Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan. It’s located on Honshu Island and rises up to a height of 3,776.24 metres. Mount Fuji is an active stratovolcano (which last erupted in 1707–08) and can be seen from Tokyo (which is 100 km away) on a clear day. It is thought that the first ascent was in 663 by an anonymous monk. The first ascent by a foreigner was by Sir Rutherford Alcock in September 1860. Approximately 300,000 people climbed this mountain in 2009 and it’s one of Japan’s most famous landmarks. This photo of the mountain has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 19th of June 2012.
