Size: Height = 19 inches
Width = 26.75 inches
Fujiyama is the highest mountain on the island of Honshu and indeed in all of Japan. It straddles Shizuoka and Yamanashi prefectures in central Japan just west of Tokyo, from which it can be seen on a clear day. It is located near the Pacific coast of central Honshu. The most popular period for people to hike up Mt. Fuji is from July 1 to August 27. The ascent can take anywhere between 5 to 7 hours while the descent can take from 3 to 5 hours. The hike is divided into ten stations and there are paved roads up to the fifth station, which is about 1400 meters above sea level. Thousands climb Mt. Fuji during this two-month period. Most climb during the night to watch the sun rise in the morning. The sheer number of climbers each year has created something of a trash problem on the road to the summit, but this has not decreased the mountain's popularity.|
