The elevation of Mount Fuji is 12,380 feet. Located just over 60 miles from Tokyo, Mount Fuji is the tallest mountain in Japan and is an active volcano. The top of the mountain has a tundra climate.
Mount Fuji is Japan's most popular tourist attraction. Each year, more than 200,000 people climb the mountain, many with a desire to watch the sunrise from its summit. With its exceptionally symmetrical cone, Fuji is frequently depicted in Japanese art and is on the World Heritage List as a cultural site. The last eruption of Mount Fuji occurred in 1707, which created a new crater and a second peak.
