The Majestic Volcano Fuji

Volcano Fuji, standing tall and proud, is a famous symbol of Japan. It’s much more than just a mountain; it’s a natural masterpiece that has been admired for centuries. This iconic landmark isn’t just a single volcano – it’s actually a series of volcanoes all stacked on top of one another!

A Towering Structure

Fuji is the tallest peak in Japan, reaching approximately 3,776 meters (12,389 feet) high. It’s like the giant of the land, watching over the country. The volcano has a perfectly symmetrical cone, which is rare for a volcano and makes it especially beautiful. Imagine a giant ice cream cone made of rock and ash, topped with snow – that’s Volcano Fuji!

Sleeping Beauty

Even though it’s a volcano, Fuji hasn’t erupted in a long time. The last time it awoke from its slumber was way back in 1707. That’s over 300 years ago! Since then, it’s been peaceful, resting quietly and covered with a blanket of snow.

A Volcano Inside a Volcano

One of the most interesting facts about Fuji is that it’s made up of three separate volcanoes. The first one, named Komitake, is at the bottom. The next one, called Kofuji, is in the middle. And the one we can see, the beautiful snowy peak, is actually the youngest, called Shin-Fuji.

A Place of Play and Prayer

Fuji isn’t just for looking at; people actually climb it! Every year, thousands of adventurers hike up the trails to the summit. And at the very top, there’s a weather station and even a place to send postcards from. People in Japan also think of Fuji as a sacred place. There are shrines near the base and along the path to the top where people can stop and say a little prayer.
