Mt. Fuji

Mt. Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan at 3,776 meters and has been worshipped as a sacred place and source of artistic inspiration.

Although it is not known as a destination for skiing, this made my list as one of the few places on earth that I have wanted to ski.

Japan is located in the Ring of Fire and is in the most geologically active section of the earth. Mt. Fuji is a perfectly shaped volcano that last erupted on December 16, 1707.  When Fuji exploded, tons of tephra, solid volcanic material, was released into the atmosphere and blanketed the town of Edo (the central part of Tokyo located nearly 62 miles away), with volcanic rock and ash.
