For today’s photo challenge of the day we asked, “Do you know which iconic mountain peak this is?
If you guessed Mount Fuji, you’re correct!
One of Japan’s “Three Holy Mountains,” Mt. Fuji is the high mountain in Japan, located on Honshu Island, coming in at 3,776.24 meters (or 12,389 ft). It is an active stratovolcano, but it hasn’t erupted since 1707-08. It lies about 60 miles south-west from Tokyo and is visible on clear days.
The peak has an exceptionally symmetrical cone that is snow capped many months of the year, which makes this natural wonder a well-known Japanese symbol.
