Mount Fuji is located to the west of the Japanese capital, Tokyo, which is the highest mountain in Japan with a height of 3700 meters, and it is one of the most important symbols of Japanese culture since ancient times.
The Japanese sanctified this mountain for thousands of years and offered it to offerings, as it contained a volcanic crater inside it that made them in a state of permanent fear of it, but it became dormant 1700 years ago.
The mountain has its snow-covered summit all year round and the waterfalls flowing from its summit in the spring and summer due to the melting of the ice in a magical landscape.
