Mount Fuji is an active stratovolcano and the tallest peak in Japan, rising 3,776 metres (12,389 feet). As seen in this Overview, Fuji has an extremely symmetrical cone, which is snow‑capped several months of the year. During warmer months, climbing routes make it possible for hundreds of thousands of people to scale the volcano each year. Photographed at an altitude of 600 km from outer space by Digital Globe.
