Mount Fuji

Japanese - A volcano regarded as a sacred. Mountain, home of the gods. The smoke which issues from the summit is the result of the love of the Emperor for the princess Kaguyahime who, leaving him to become an immortal, left him a mirror in which he might always see her image and which burst into flame with the heat of his passion. Its permanent cap of snow stems from the anger of the god Mioya when the god of the mountain refused to offer him hospitality. Sometimes known as Mount Fuji, Blue Rain Hill, Blue Rain Hill, Fuji San, Fuji San, Fujiyama, Fujiyama, Immortal Mountain, Immortal Mountain, Moraisan or Moraisan.
