An iconic symbol of Japan, Mount Fuji is one of the most recognized places found in Japanese culture, and it appears throughout the art, literature, and religion across the land. Climbing Mt. Fuji, the highest mountain in Japan, is a tough ascent, that will take you to the 3.776 metres (12,388 feet) high summit. The climbing season normally is from July 1st to mid-September. With enough courage to take on the challenging one-to-two-day hike, you can set off on one of the four trails — each of which offers its own degree of difficulty.
