Mt. Fuji, located on Honshu Island, is the highest mountain in Japan at 3,776.24 m (12,389 ft) above sea level. An active stratovolcano that last erupted between 1707 and 1708, Mt Fuji lies about 100 kilometers south-west of Tokyo, from which it can be seen on a clear day. Mt. Fuji’s exceptionally symmetrical cone, which is snow-capped for several months a year, is a well-known symbol of Japan and is frequently depicted in art and photographs, as well as visited by sightseers and climbers. It is one of Japan’s “Three Holy Mountains” along with Mt. Tate and Mt. Haku; it is a Special Place of Scenic Beauty, a Historic Site that was added to the World Heritage List as a Cultural Site on June 22nd, 2013. The mountain has been selected as a “cultural” heritage site, rather than a “natural” heritage site. According to UNESCO, Mt. Fuji has “inspired artists and poets and has been the object of pilgrimage for centuries.”
This is a painting by Tsubouchi Shōan of Mt. Fuji and Flying Cranes. The depiction of the sea of clouds is breathtaking. The fantastic sky gives the flying cranes a lively feeling.
