Mt. Fuji, originally uploaded by * Yumi *.

Mount Fuji is over 12,000 feet high, and is located just west of Tokyo. On clear days, you can see the mountain from the city. Mount Fuji last erupted in December 1707 (and that eruption lasted until January 1708.)

Today’s choice of photo was inspired by a poem by Kobayashi Issa (1763-1827):

O snail,
climb Mt. Fuji,
but slowly, slowly

Enjoy today’s photo! If you like the photo, please drop a comment to the original photographer at Flickr.
