Mount Fuji

Mount Fuji

Standing 3,776 meters (12,388 feet) high, Mt Fuji is the largest mountain in Japan. It is a dormant volcano that last erupted in 1707-1708.

Long worshiped as sacred, Mt Fuji is one of Japan's “Three Holy Mountains.” Its almost perfectly symmetrical shape attracts artists and photographers.

Mt Fuji is a popular destination for climbers and hikers. It is estimated that each year 200,000 people climb it. Many visit Mt Fuji because they simply want to experience the natural beauty of the area.

There are many scenic spots from which to view the mountains of the region, including one reached by an aerial lift. Lava caves formed during past volcanic eruptions, shrines dedicated to the Shinto deity of Mt Fuji, and a reconstructed thatched roof village are some of the local attractions you may want to visit while in the area.

More than one thousand Fuji Sengen Shrines throughout Japan are dedicated to Princess Konohanasakuya, the Shinto deity of Mt. Fuji. The main Sengen Shrine, Fuji-Yoshida, is located on the north side of Mt. Fuji. Its buildings date from 1615.

With its unobstructed views, Kawaguchiko is a popular location to photograph Mt Fuji. Lake Kawaguchiko is within Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park and is part of the Fuji Five Lakes system.

Lake Saiko, also known as Lake Sai, is smaller and less developed than Lake Kawaguchiko. During eruptions of Mt Fuji, lava caves were formed in the area. Three of them, the Ice Cave, Bat Cave, and Wind Cave, are accessible to visitors.

Kawaguchiko Mt Tenjo Ropeway is an aerial lift that extends from Lake Kawaguchiko to the observatory on Mt Kachi Kachi. From here visitors can view the Aokigahara forest and Mt Fuji.

On the south side of Lake Saiko is Saiko Iyashino-Sato Nenba (Healing Village). It is a reconstruction of what was considered to be the most beautiful group of kayabuki (thatched roof) houses in Japan. The original village was destroyed by a typhoon in 1936. Visitors to the village can observe the production of traditional handicrafts, purchase local products, and sample traditional dishes.
