Mt. Fuji is the symbol of Japan. It is so recognizable, and is an example of a nearly perfectly shaped stratovolcano. At 3776 metres tall, it is the tallest mountain in Japan. I’ve been to the top and peered down into the summit crater. Very exhilarating! Today, I took this picture shortly after sunset, and you can see the peaceful cone of the volcano on the left. Or is it peaceful? It seems that recent measurements have shown that the pressure in the magma chamber is 16 times the minimum amount for an eruption. But it doesn’t mean that an eruption will happen soon. Other factors are involved for an eruption. So for now, enjoy the view!
