Mount Fuji is a stratovolcano approximately 100 km or 60 miles west of Tokyo, Japan. It is the highest peak of the country, rising 3,776 m (12,388 ft) above sea level, and one of Japan’s most famous symbols. Mount Fuji’s last eruption took place in 1707-1708 and it is still considered an active volcano in the Pacific Ring of Fire.
Its symmetrical shape, surrounded by five lakes, has been a frequent source of inspiration for artists.
The caption reads in the original French:
