Glorious, solitary, active volcano Fujisan (known the world over as Mount Fuji) is the highest peak in Japan, and can be seen from Tokyo on a clear day. Symbol to many as birth and rebirth, Fujisan has been a pilgrimage place for artists and poets for centuries. This impressive peak, only recently added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2013, and interestingly enough for its cultural importance in representations of art over time, is considered one of the three holy mountains along with Mount Tate and Mount Taku. Conservation strategies are concentrated for the time being to the upper routes and mountain huts to stabilize paths and manage erosion. Try the Yoshida trail.
