Mount Fuji is one of the best known natural features of Japan and is conveniently located in Chubu region, Honshu, west of the capital Tokyo. It is 3,776 metres high and the walk up to the summit is tough but require no special climbing skills. Mount Fuji has an exceptionally symmetrical cone which is a recognisable symbol of this East Asian country.
Over 200,000 people climb the mountain yearly and most of them climb in the 1 July - 27 August season when huts and most other facilities in and around the mountain and nearby villages are open. It is part of the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park and although it hasn't erupted for about 300 years, it is indeed a volcano. It also is surrounded by five lakes, among which are Lake Kawaguchi, Lake Yamanaka and Lake Motosu. From these lakes and Lake Ashi (which is a little further away) people who do not want to climb the mountain can have excellent views of the mountain when the weather is clear. In winter, the summit is covered in snow.
Mount Fuji - Shizuoka Airport is nearest to Mount Fuji, about 80 kilometres and just opende recently in June 2009. Destinations include Sapporo, Naha, Fukuoka, Komatsu, Kumamoto, Kagoshima and both Seoul-Incheon and Shanghai Pudong International Airport.
