Fuji contains a 700-m-wide crater at the summit of the modern cone that is constructed over a group of overlapping volcanoes. The diagonal line to the lower right is a road that extends to the timberline on the N flank. Historical eruptions have been recorded since the 8th century with the latest in 1707.
