The team took pictures of the popular Yoshida trail that takes hikers up the mountain, the full walk around the crater at the top, and the quick zigzag descent. They clicked a total of 14,000 photos of the dormant volcano, including a lot of photos of the terrain to help climbers, especially during the night time.
In addition to being a heritage site, Mt. Fuji is also a very important part of Japan s culture and history. For centuries the mountain has inspired scores of art and woodwork.
