Mount Fuji (富士山 or "Fuji-san") stands 3,776.24 meters (12,389 feet), making it the tallest mountain in Japan and one of the country's most recognizable symbols. The cone-shaped mountain is an active stratovolcano—a volcano built up by many layers of hardened lava, tephra, pumice and volcanic ash—and is located 100 kilometers (60 miles) west of Tokyo. Fuji-san last erupted in the early 1700s. Following the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami many feared Mount Fuji would erupt again. 
Despite those recent concerns, Fuji-san remains an international destination for tourism and mountain climbing. Hundreds of thousands of people make the 8-hour summit each year, most doing so during peak season in July and August. Many climb the mountain at night in order to catch a glimpse of goraikō (御来光 or "arrival of light"), the special name for a sunrise on Fuji-san.
