Mount Fuji (富士山, Fuji-san),
is the highest mountain in Japan at 3,776 m (12,388 ft). Along with Mount Tate and Mount Haku, it is one of Japan's "Three Holy Mountains" (三霊山 Sanreizan). An active volcano that last erupted in 1707–08, Mount Fuji straddles the boundary of Shizuoka and Yamanashi prefectures just west of Tokyo, from which it can be seen on a clear day. It is located near the Pacific coast of central Honshū. Three small cities surround it: Gotemba (south), Fujiyoshida (north) and Fujinomiya (southwest).
Mount Fuji's exceptionally symmetrical cone is a well-known symbol of Japan and it is frequently depicted in art and photographs, as well as visited by sightseers and climbers.

Fujisan overlooks the Kanto plain.
He was north of Edo and was a protective deity, symbolized also in the "Genbu 玄武
black warrior" of Chinese lore.

There were many "Mount Fuji worship groups" in Edo, "Devotional Fuji confraternities" (Fujiko(fujikoo, fujikou 富士講).
Worshiping the mountain from the north (modern day Tokyo) would be considered an Edo religion.
