Japan: 富士山, Fujisan

An excellent video of climbing Mt. Fuji:

"Mount Fuji (富士山, Fujisan) is with 3776 meters Japan's highest mountain. It is not surprising that the nearly perfectly shaped volcano has been worshiped as a sacred mountain and experienced big popularity among artists and common people throughout the centuries." National Geographic Kids video about Mt. Fuji.

"Mount Fuji is an active volcano, which most recently erupted in 1708. It stands on the border betweenYamanashi and Shizuoka Prefectures and can be seen from Tokyo and Yokohama on clear days."

Sister Breksa climbed Mt. Fuji in 2009.
