Latest on Mount Fuji

Before the days of satellites, there was a manned radar dome on top of Mt. Fuji. From its installation in 1965 up until 1999 it served as a detection system for dangerous storms. Just imagine what that job was like in winter! At the end of its usefulness, the radar dome was air-lifted to a new home in Fujiyoshida, and turned into a small museum. They have a special room where you can experience a simulation of weather conditions at the top of Mount Fuji. There is an English leaflet available, and the museum is about 3 kilometers from Fujisan Station.
