However, the cities of Kyoto and Nara holds Japan’s history. Amidst the presence of the many temples, shrines and other traditional structures that remain erected there. Mt. Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan. In fact, it is so tall, you can clearly see from the capital city of Tokyo on a fog-free day.
