Gaze at the gorgeous pink and red horizon, as the sun slowly makes its way up, from Japan’s highest mountain, Mt. Fuji. Located in the Honshu Island, the mountain stands 12,398 feet tall. The last eruption of Mt. Fuji was during the 1700s; relegating the mountain to a highly coveted tourist destination. A phenomenal view of the mountain can be seen from different places such as Lake Kawaguchiko, Hakone resort town, Kamakura and Gotemba towns, Tokyo Sky Tree, and various other places. But don’t let that stop you from taking a hike up there. Make sure to travel with a group since the climb up Mount Fuji can take upwards of 9 hours. At the height, the visitors can peek the crater of the once deadly volcano. If it encourages you to take the hike, Mt. Fuji is one of the few sites recognized as World Heritage by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), and there’s a variety of souvenirs to buy at the top of the mountain. The journey to Mount Fuji will be physically challenging but it will be an accomplishment you’ll remember for the rest of your life.
