Mt fuji
Mt.Fuji is expected to be listed on a World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO as early as in June.
The Japan's highest mountain stands 3,776m high. It's Japan's most familiar symbol.
The reason to be listed is said that Mr. Fuji (Fuji-San) represents the Japanese inherent traditional culture of worshipping mountains.
Since ancient times following Japan's indigenous religion of Shinto, Japanese people have deified nature such as mountains, rivers, forests etc.
Mt. Fuji has been considered as a sacred mountain, especially by its perfect cone-shape.
Particularly from a distance, it's a remarkable sight.
It's an active volcano, and its last major explosion occurred in 1707.
In the brief two months of July and August, when the mountain is officially open to climbers, more than 200,000 people hike to the top of the mountain from its fifth station.
One can climb the mountain at any time throughout the year, but the huts en route and food service are available only in July and August.
It is located between Yamanashi and Shizuoka Prefectures. You can see it from Tokyo on clear days.
When you take trains between Tokyo and Nagoya, Kyoto and Osaka, you can enjoy its beautiful view.
