high res (1.4 M) low res (68 K)
ISS008-E-17326 (28 February 2004) --- Mt. Fuji, Japanís tallest volcano (3776 meters) and national symbol, is featured in this photo taken by an Expedition 8 crewmember onboard the International Space Station (ISS). Fuji is located about 110 kilometers (70 miles) west-southwest of Tokyo in central Honshu, Japan. The summit crater is about 250 meters deep, with a diameter of about 500 meters. Fuji last erupted in 1707 from Hoei crater, a vent on the mountainís southeastern flank. When this image was taken, the winter snow cover highlighted trails, roads and other clearings above a certain elevation. Developments on Fujiís lower flanks, which include military installations and tourist resorts, remained snow-free.
