Mt.Fuji

Mt.Fuji, the highest peak in Japan, is 3,776 meters in height.

It has been worshipped and loved by the Japanese people

since ancient times for its noble and nearly perfect conical shape.

It is classified as an  active volcano whose last eruption took place in 1707.

At that time, three inches of ashes fell on Tokyo (at that time Edo)

about 120 kilometers away from the mountain.

The name “Fuji” meant fire mountain in the aborigines’ language

and it also means  immortality.
