Mount Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan, which goes up more than 12,000 ft. It is a dormant volcano and it is said that last eruption happened in 1707. Historically Mount Fuji has given a lot of meaning to Japanese people and that’s why we can find Mount Fuji somewhere in the most of old Japanese paintings. However, if the main background of paining is Tokyo, it might be not really impossible for painters to see Mount Fuji when drawing pictures. Mount Fuji is located in about 100 kilometers from Tokyo so that we can see it in Tokyo on a clear day.
If you love outdoor activities, climbing Mount Fuji can be one of attractions you may enjoy during your trip to Japan. However, it is not possible to go there anytime in a year even if you want to climb Mount Fuji. As explained above, Mount Fuji is a dormant volcano and it means it can be very dangerous at the same time. Therefore, climbing Mount Fuji is only permitted during summer when trails are open; which is from early July to early September.
