Let me introduce you to the major mountains of Japan from the north. Speaking of Japan’s mountains, Mount Fuji is particularly famous. But there are many other beautiful mountains. Volcanic activity has continued in the Japanese archipelago since ancient times, so eruptions have created many smooth and balanced mountains. On the other hand, in central Honshu and other areas, there are many high-profile alpine mountains born of uplifts. Here, with regard to mountain range, the name of mountain range is shown instead of individual mountain.
