Transcript of MOUNT FUJIIII
People often hike to the summit to see the shrine to Sengen-sama at the peak.Also,some hike through the night to see the sunrise from the summit, sometimes called Asama. Mount Fuji is a composite volcano created an estimated 600,000 years ago, supposedly. It is considered dormant, having last erupted in 1708, and there is still a chance for it to erupt. Before the 1708 eruption there were 16 known eruptions, with the volcano having only one time where it had several eruptions within a short time.
At the peak of the volcano there is a giant crater, 800 meters across and 200 meters deep. According to Buddhism historical accounts, Mount Fuji rose in an earthquake that also created Lake Biwa, the largest lake in Japan. The first ascent was made by an anonymous monk in 663 A.D., and several more ascents happened afterwards but only by men. Women were forbidden to climb Mount Fuji until the Meiji Era. The first ascent made by a foreigner was by Sir Rutherford Alcock in September of 1860, 8 hours for the ascent and 3 hours for the descent. The wife of Sir Harry Parkes, Lady Fanny Parkes, was the first foreign woman to make the ascent in 1867. According to sacred-destinations.com... According to Wikipedia.org...
