Mt. Fuji from the International Space Station

This astronaut photo of Mt Fuji, Japan’s tallest volcano (3,776 m) and a national symbol was taken from the International Space Station. The winter snow cover highlighted trails, roads, and other clearings above a certain elevation. Developments on Fuji’s lower flanks, which include military installations and tourist resorts, remained snow-free.
