Mount Fuji from space
Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency features Japan’s highest mountain, Mount Fuji, from space.
The mountain is a product of the subduction zone that straddles Japan, and many generations of volcanic activity have made it what it is today.
Around 300,000 people climb Mount Fuji every year, and several hiking trails can be seen leading to the base of the mountain in this photo. The city of Fujinomiya is the traditional starting point for hikers.
