Mt. Mihara (三原山)

Mountain

"Mt. Mihara is a 758-meter high volcano situated roughly in the middle of Izu Oshima Island. Originally created by a volcanic eruption in 1777, Mt. Mihara has continued to erupt on a fairly regular basis since then, giving it the appearance that it has today. The most recent major eruption was in 1986; the ""Godzilla Rock"" that emerged during that eruption is a popular tourist attraction. There are hiking trails on and around the mountain; visitors can choose the route that best suits their interests and their state of physical fitness. The mouth of the volcano, at the summit, is a shaft-like crater that is roughly 300 meters wide and over 200 meters deep; because of the absence of any obstructions, there are superb views from the summit."

          The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It’s hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world’s tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you’re in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
