CaptionsMt. Fuji, Japan:
Fuji, Japanís tallest volcano (3,776 m) and a national symbol, is located about 110 km (70 miles) west-southwest of Tokyo in central Honshu, Japan. It is a highly recognizable target from space and last week International Space Station crew members peered down onto Fujiís snow-capped cone. The summit crater is about 250 m deep, with a diameter of about 500 meters. Fuji last erupted in 1707 from Hoei crater, a vent on the mountainís southeastern flank.
When this image was taken, the winter snow cover highlighted trails, roads, and other clearings above a certain elevation. Developments on Fujiís lower flanks, which include military installations and tourist resorts, remained snow-free.
