Nature (general) sight seeing (general)

This is not Mt. Fuji, but Mt. Yotei in Hokkaido(これは富士山ではありません 北海道の羊蹄山です)

I don’t think there is a mountain in the world that is as well-shaped as Mt. Fuji. It is a volcano formed by the regular arrangement of lava that has flowed out due to the eruption,.

There is a mountain in Hokkaido that looks just like Mt. Fuji. It is Mt. Yotei and is also called Ezo Fuji. The mountain is near Lake Toya, southwest of Sapporo City.

There are many well-shaped mountains all over Japan. But the upper half of Mt. Yotei is white in winter just like Mt. Fuji, because there is a forest limit on the hillside. However, it is a little distorted compared to Mt. Fuji.
