Mount Fuji Volcano in Japan has Morning Glow 日本の富士山には朝焼けがあります

Mount Fuji is located on the island of Honshū (the "mainland"). This is the highest mountain in Japan, standing 3,776.24 m (12,389.2 ft). It is the second-highest volcano located on an island in Asia (after Mount Kerinci on the island of Sumatra), and seventh-highest peak of an island on Earth. Mount Fuji is an active stratovolcano that last erupted certainly from 1707 to 1708. The mountain is located about 100 km (62 mi) southwest of Tokyo and is visible from there on clear days. Mount Fuji's exceptionally symmetrical cone, which is covered in snow for about five months of the year, is commonly used as a cultural icon of Japan and it is frequently depicted in various art and photography, as well as visited by sightseers and climbers.

富士山は本州(「本土」)の島にあります。 これは日本で最も高い山で、標高3,776.24 m(12,389.2フィート)です。 これは、アジアの島にある2番目に高い火山(スマトラ島のクリンチ山に次ぐ)であり、地球上の島の7番目に高い山です。 富士山は、1707年から1708年にかけて確実に噴火した活発な成層火山です。この山は、東京の南西約100 km(62マイル)に位置し、晴れた日にはそこから見えます。 富士山の非常に対称的な円錐形は、年間約5か月間雪に覆われ、日本の文化的象徴として一般的に使用されており、さまざまな芸術や写真に頻繁に描かれ、観光客や登山者が訪れます。

Mount Fuji is one of Japan's "Three Holy Mountains" (三霊山, Sanreizan) along with Mount Tate and Mount Haku. It is a beautiful place that is considered one of Japan's Historic Sites.

  1. Many have thought about what would happen if Mount Fuji explodes. Fuji could certainly paralyze Tokyo. A Japanese government panel has said any major eruption of Mount Fuji would rain so much ash on the capital Tokyo that its transportation network of trains and highways would be "paralyzed" in three hours.
