This unmistakable icon of Japan, Mount Fuji is commonly known as Fuji-San! It is the tallest peak in the Land of the Rising Sun, standing at 3,776m above sea level.
Playing Peek-a-Boo amongst the Cherry blossoms!
Mount Fuji has always captured the imagination of Japanese writers & artists & been venerated for generations in the literary world.
Fuji-San is situated about 100km southwest of Tokyo in the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park which spans an area of 20,702.1 ha.

Mount Fuji is quite illusive & the view is often obstructed by clouds & visibility is close to zero. It would be best to stay around the Five Lakes or Fujigoko region at the northern foot of the mountain. You stand a better chance of seeing this shy maiden during the colder seasons like Spring & Winter & either early in the morning or late evening hours.
