Fuji-san (Mount Fuji) is the highest mountain in Japan. It is an active volcano that last erupted at the end of 1707, during the mid Edo era. Although a site of pilgrimage since the Nara period, Fuji-san became more politically and religiously important with the shift of the capital from Kyoto to Edo. Its symbolic importance steadily increased during the Edo period, as it was easily seen from the Tokaido road to Edo.
