Mount Fuji belongs to private land. The Japanese government has no right to use the mountain, only the lease right. The earliest ownership of Mount Fuji belonged to Tokugawa Jiakang in the shogunate era. Later, Tokugawa Jiakang gave the land above 3360 meters of Mount Fuji to Asama temple on Mount Fuji. At the beginning of the 20th century, Mount Fuji was once nationalized. It was not until 2004 that the Japanese government returned the land more than 3360 meters above Mount Fuji to Asama temple.
Mount Fuji is located in the south central part of Honshu Island, about 80 kilometers east of Tokyo, across the active volcanoes in Shizuoka county and Yamanashi County, close to the Pacific coast and about 80 kilometers southwest of Tokyo. With a height of 3775.63 meters, it is the highest peak in Japan. The perimeter of the mountain bottom is 125 kilometers, covering an area of about 1200 square kilometers. Mount Fuji is conical, with snow on the top all year round. Around the foothills of Mount Fuji, there are five freshwater lakes, collectively referred to as "Fuji Five Lakes"
Mount Fuji is one of the classic symbols of Japanese spirit and culture. In the hearts of the Japanese, it is a beautiful and solemn sacred mountain with natural charm. Since ancient times, it has been the theme of praise by Japanese writers. At the same time, it is also a holy land respected by the Japanese. It is a part of Japanese folk religion.
Mount Fuji is known as the "holy mountain" by the Japanese people and is a symbol of the pride of the Japanese nation. Mount Fuji is towering into the clouds, and the top of the mountain is covered with snow. Looking around, it looks like a fan hanging upside down in the air. Therefore, it is also known as the "jade fan". As one of the symbols of Japan, Mount Fuji enjoys a high reputation in the world. It is often called "Hibiscus peak" or "Fuyue" and "the only kaolin".
