About this sight

With a height of 3,067 meters, this summit is number 14 on the list of Japan's 21 mountains over 3,000 meters. Previously believed to be an inactive volcano, eruptions occurred in 1979, 1991, 2007 and 2014. Although restrictions were enforced following the latest eruption, Mount Ontake, or Ontake-san in Japanese -- believed to be a powerful sacred spot -- remains a popular destination for hiking and winter sports.
