Mount Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan and is considered sacred. It has been featured in many ukiyo-e woodcuts and paintings, the subject epitomising the notion of the 'floating world'. The dense Aokigahara forest at its base is an ideal location from which to view the mountain, but is difficult to access. It has a historic association with demons in Japanese mythology, and is the country's most popular place for suicides.
