You can see in the photo above, the beauty of one of the tallest mountains in the world, Mt. Fuji. It is located on Honshu Island between Yamanashi Prefecture and Shizuoka Prefecture. The photo above was taken at Fujikawaguchiko-machi, Minamitsuru-gun, Yamanashi Prefecture last May 29, 2015 during the Fuji Shibazakura Festival.
Mt. Fuji is one of the Three Holy Mountains (Sanreizan) in Japan along with Mt. Tate and Mt. Haku. It is the highest mountain in Japan at 3,776.24 m (12,389 ft.) It is also a Special Place of Scenic Beauty and one of Japan’s historic sites. It was also added to the world heritage list as a Cultural Site on June 22, 2013. Mt. Fuji’s symmetrical cone which is snow capped for several months a year, is a well-known symbol of Japan and it is frequently depicted in art and photographs.
For sure you will love the scenery here at Fuji Kawaguchiko especially for photographers, nature lovers, couples, family, etc. One of the best time to view this beautiful mountain is during Late Winter and Spring Season.
There are 5 lakes which surrounds Mt. Fuji and they are as follows:

2. Lake Kawaguchiko
3. Lake Shojiko
4. Lake Yamanakako
5. Lake Saiko
Did you know that Mt. Fuji’s last eruption started in December 1707 and then continued until the first day of the year 1708. For those who are planning to climb at Mt. Fuji, the season is very short. It starts on the 1st day of July and ends in the last week of August 27th.
One thing that you would be amazed of is that Mt. Fuji can be seen from so many places in clear days like Tokyo, while riding a train between Tokyo and Osaka, and many more.
