Mount Fuji, the highest mountain of Japan, is located in Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park on Honshu Island. It is regarded as a sacred place and has Japan’s official designation as “A Special Place of Scenic Beauty.” In 2013 it was added to UNESCO’S World Heritage List.

It is the destination for hundreds of thousands of seekers, hikers, pilgrims and climbers from Japan and the rest of the world. Its perfect volcanic cone has been an icon of beauty for centuries, inspiring countless works of art and poetry.
