Mount Fuji

Mount Fuji is the symbol not only of Shizuoka prefecture but also of Japanese scenery as a whole.

Mt. Fuji has a characteristic shape that was created over three generations of volcanic activities by the Ashitakayama/Ko-Mitake (Small Mitake), Ko-Fuji (Old Fuji) and Shin-Fuji (New Fuji) volcanoes. The Ko-Mitake volcano lost its activity over 100,000 years ago. The Ko-Fuji volcano formed the base of the current Mt. Fuji and is believed to have been active between approximately 10,000 and 100,000 years ago.
