9. Mount Fuji, Japan
Mount Fuji is the single most popular tourist destination in Japan. The mountain has not been active since 1707 but is still listed as an active volcano. The perfectly symmetrical snow-topped volcano sits before Lake Kawaguchi. It is one of the world’s most recognizable natural destinations. You can also enjoy the culture and cuisine of Japan with Tokyo just a short trip away. Hundreds of thousands of tourists climb to the top each year for a moment of peace and quiet as they look back out over Japan’s most populous island.
