Mount Fuji is a popular tourist destination, seen here providing the backdrop to a fireworks display at Lake Yamanaka, one of five lakes at the northern base of the volcano. The line of diagonal lights extending up the right-hand side of Fuji are mountain huts along the ten stations of the Fuji-Yoshida climbing route, the most popular of the six major summer ascent routes.
