Mt.Fuji a world cultual heritage

What comes to people’s minds is probably Mt. Fuji which has a height of 3,776 meters
and is listed as a World Cultural Heritage site, will come to mind first.
Mt.Fuji

More than 300,000 people a year climb Mt. Fuji, with half of them climbing along the Yoshida Route.
The number of climbers is counted by infrared lights on the eighth level of four climbing routes
Yoshida, Subashiri, Gotenba and Fujinomiya.
In comparison, the lowest mountain in Japan used to be Mount Tenpo, at only 4.53 meters above sea level,
until Mount Hiyori, in Miyagi Prefecture, was confirmed to be the lowest mountain
by the Geospatial Information Authority of Japan in April 2014.

hiroshima japan

sightseeing in Hiroshima

I received a question,
“Where is the best place in Hiroshima?”

The answer is…
miyajima
Itsukushima shrine』 in Miyajima
The big red one is 『Torii』.
The torii is the gateway to Shinto shrines.
Most torii are red, but some can be seen in other colors such as white or black.
The shrine is known worldwide for its iconic “floating” torii gate.

At high tide the shrine and its gate appear to float above the water, and this is certainly the time at which they are most picturesque. At low tide, the water drains out of the bay. This is when visitors can take the opportunity to walk out and see the gate from up close.
