Data from the Global Volcanism Program of the Smithsonian Institution
Details for: Fujisan
Winter snows cover the slopes of Mount Fuji, Japan's highest and most renowned volcano. A 700-m-wide crater caps the 3776-m-high stratovolcano. The modern symmetrical cone is constructed over a group of overlapping volcanoes, a remnant of which, Hoei-san, forms the knob halfway down the SE (left) flank. The diagonal line at the lower right is a toll road that extends to timberline on the north flank. Historical eruptions have been recorded since the 8th century, the latest in 1707.
