Mount Fuji stands in central Honshu, straddling Shizuoka and Yamanashi Prefectures. There are express trains that can take you there from Tokyo and back. Regarded as a holy mountain by the Japanese, Mount Fuji has erupted multiple times in recorded history, most recently in 1707. It has been dormant since then. Today, the snowcapped peak of Mount Fuji has become one of Japan’s national symbols.
