All About Mount Fuji
Mount Fuji means “volcano” in Japanese. It is 3776 meters above sea level and covers an area of 90.76 square kilometers. It stands in central and southern Honshu, straddling Shizuoka and Yamanashi prefectures, and 80 kilometers east of Tokyo. It is the highest peak in Japan and one of the largest active volcanoes in the world. It is currently dormant, but geologists still classify it as an active volcano. This mountain, regarded as the “Holy Mountain” by the Japanese, has erupted 18 times since it was recorded in 781. The last eruption was in 1707, and it has been dormant since then. The two volcanic craters on the top of the mountain formed two beautiful volcanic lakes. At the foot of the mountain, there were caves in various shapes and shapes after the eruption, and some of them were still blowing air. The walls of Fuyuefeng Cave are covered with stalactite-like icicles, which are called “Wannian Snow”.
Mount Fuji is surrounded by “Fuji Eight Peaks” such as Sword Peak, Hakusan Mountain, Kusushidake, Oriyake, Izudake, Jojodake, Komagatake, and Sandake. Mount Fuji has 4 main climbing entrances, namely Fujinomiya Exit, Susou Exit, Gotemba Exit, Fujiyoshida (Kawaguchiko) Exit, the first three of which are in Shizuoka Prefecture. The sacred temples on the summit, Kusushi Shrine and Sengen Shrine, are the main scenic spots of Fuji Hakone-Izu National Park, and they are also frequented by tourists.
There are Fuji Five Lakes at the northern foot of Mount Fuji. From east to west, there are Lake Yamanaka, Lake Kawaguchi, Lake West, Lake Jinjin and Lake Motosu. The scenery of the lakes and mountains is very pleasant. The reflection of Mount Fuji reflected in Lake Kawaguchi is known as one of the wonders of Mount Fuji. Oshino Village, in the southeast of the lake, has 8 ponds, including Yuchi Pond and Mirror Pond, which are collectively called “Oshino Hakkai”, which are connected to Lake Yamanaka. The southern foot of the mountain is a vast plateau pasture with green grass and flocks of cattle and sheep.

As one of the symbols of Japan, Mount Fuji enjoys a high reputation all over the world. It is also often referred to as “Furong Peak” or “Fuyue” and “Fuji’s Gaoling”. Since ancient times, the name of this mountain has often appeared in the traditional Japanese poem “Waka”.
The name Fuji is derived from the Ezo language and now means “eternal life”. The original pronunciation comes from the language of the Ainu ethnic minority in Japan, which means “Mountain of Fire” or “God of Fire”. The beautiful conical shape of the mountain is well-known throughout the world and is a sacred symbol of Japan.
Now, Mount Fuji is hailed as the “Holy Mountain” by the Japanese people and is a symbol of the pride of the Japanese nation. Mount Fuji towers into the clouds, and the top of the mountain is white and snowy. Looking around, it looks like a fan hanging upside down, so it is also known as the “Jade Fan”. Fuji alias for the holy mountain
Mount Fuji is Japan’s sacred mountain, across Shizuoka, Yamanashi counties county, is the Fuji volcanic belt system peak mountains, conical, foothills was beautiful skirt drooping arc, right in the Suruga On the big ditch belt between the bay and Iyuchuan. At an altitude of 37,76 meters, it is slightly lower than Yushan in our country, but just like her nickname for “the best mountain”, it has the highest altitude in Japan and a flawless, dignified and beautiful posture.
In the past, the tourism industry in Shizuoka Prefecture tended to be high-end and sophisticated, so the prices were quite high; Taiwanese tourist groups traveled through Mount Fuji, and travel agencies naturally chose relatively cheap accommodations at Lake Kawaguchi or Lake Yamanaka in Yamanashi County. However, people in Shizuoka will often tell you with confidence that the front of Mount Fuji can only be seen in Shizuoka Prefecture, and Yamanashi Prefecture can only see the back.
As the most important symbol of Japan’s natural beauty, Mount Fuji is a mountain range that was formed when the Izu Peninsula, which was once an island, violently collided and squeezed with Honshu Island due to changes in the earth’s crust about 10,000 years ago. It is a mountain range in history. Hugh volcano, which has recorded more than a dozen eruptions.
The top of the mountain is a volcanic crater with a diameter of about 800 meters and a depth of 200 meters. According to a bird’s eye view, it is as beautiful as a blooming lotus flower, but it is another style that very few people are fortunate enough to personally appreciate.
The mountain is cone-shaped, with 18 eruptions, the most recent eruption in 1707. Although it is in a dormant state, there is still a jet phenomenon. Formed about 10,000 years ago, it is a typical stratiform volcano. The basement is Tertiary. At the beginning of the Quaternary, volcanic lava broke through the Tertiary strata, erupted and accumulated to form a mountain. After multiple eruptions, the volcanic eruption accumulated layer by layer to become a cone-shaped stratified volcano. There are more than 2,000 species of plants on the mountain, with obvious vertical distribution. The subtropical evergreen forests below 500 meters above sea level, the temperate deciduous broad-leaved forests at 500-2000 meters, the cold-temperate coniferous forests at 2000-2600 meters, and the alpine dwarf forests at above 2600 meters Forest belt. The top of the mountain is covered with snow all year round. The five dammed lakes (Fuji Five Lakes: Mountain, Kawaguchi, Nishi, Shojin, Motosu) in the north piedmont, reflecting the white snow, lakes and mountains, and beautiful scenery are Japan’s tourist attractions. There are various parks, science museums, museums and various playgrounds. There is a huge crater on the top of the mountain with a diameter of about 800 meters and a depth of about 200 meters.
Mount Fuji is a typical stratovolcano. In terms of shape, it is a standard cone-shaped volcano with a unique and graceful outline. So far, the formation of Mount Fuji can be roughly divided into three stages:
Komitake, Old Fuji, and New Fuji. Among them, Komitake is the oldest and was a volcano formed in the Pleistocene hundreds of thousands of years ago.
The ancient Fuji was formed by the deposition of volcanic ash and other materials that continued to erupt from about 80,000 years ago until about 15,000 years ago, and its height is close to 3,000 meters above sea level. It is estimated that the top of the mountain was 1-2 kilometers north of the current Baoyong crater.
Due to the eruption of the volcanic crater, Mount Fuji formed numerous caves at the foot of the mountain, and some caves still have jet phenomenon. The walls of the most beautiful Fuyuefeng Cave are covered with stalactite-like icicles, which remain untouched all year round and are regarded as a rare spectacle. There are two large and small craters on the top of the mountain, a large crater with a diameter of about 800 meters and a depth of 200 meters. When the weather is fine, watching the sunrise from the top of the mountain and watching the sea of clouds is an indispensable tourist item for tourists from all over the world to come to Japan.
There are Fuji Five Lakes at the northern foot of Mount Fuji. From east to west, there are Lake Yamanaka, Lake Kawaguchi, Lake West, Lake Jingjin and Lake Motosu. Lake Yamanaka is the largest with an area of 6.75 square kilometers. There are many sports facilities by the lake, such as tennis, water skiing, fishing, camping and boating. Oshino Village, in the southeast of the lake, has 8 ponds including Yuchi Pond and Mirror Pond, collectively called “Oshino Hakkai”, which are connected to Lake Yamanaka. Lake Kawaguchi is the first to be developed among the Five Lakes. The transportation here is very convenient and it has become the center of sightseeing in the Five Lakes. Ushima in the lake is the only island in the five lakes. There is a shrine dedicated to protecting pregnant women from giving birth. There is also a 1,260-meter-long bridge across the lake on the lake. The reflection of Mount Fuji reflected in Lake Kawaguchi is known as one of the wonders of Mount Fuji.
West Lake, also known as West Lake, is the quietest lake among the five lakes. According to legend, West Lake and Jingjin Lake were originally connected, and later divided into two lakes due to the eruption of Mt. Fuji, but the bottoms of the two lakes are still connected. There are scenic spots such as Hongyetai, Aokigahara Sea of Trees, Naruzawa Ice Cave, and Zuwada Mountain along the shore. Lake Shoji is the smallest lake among the Fuji Five Lakes, but its style is the most unique. There are many towering cliffs on the lake shore and the terrain is complex. Lake Motosu is the deepest, with the deepest point reaching 126 meters. The surface of the lake does not freeze all year round, it is dark blue, revealing an unfathomable mystery.
The southern foot of Mount Fuji is a vast plateau area with green grass, a tourist pasture with flocks of cattle and sheep. At the southwestern foot of the mountain, there are the famous Shiraito Falls and Yinzhi Falls. The white waterfall has a drop of 26 meters. It is divided into more than ten trickles from the rock wall. It seems that countless Bailian falls from the air, forming a rain curtain with a width of more than 130 meters, which is quite spectacular. Yinzhi Waterfall is like a huge pillar impacting from a high place, and the sound is like thunder, shaking the sky and the earth. Mount Fuji is also called a natural botanical garden. There are more than 2,000 species of plants on the mountain.
At the foot of Mount Fuji in Susono City, Shizuoka Prefecture, there is also a Fuji Safari Park with an area of 740,000 square meters. It houses more than 1,000 wild animals of 40 species, including more than 30 lions. Visitors can drive cars and watch various animals in the park.

The sacred temples on the summit, Kusushi Shrine and Sengen Shrine, are the main scenic spots of Fuji Hakone-Izu National Park, and they are also frequented by tourists. Thousands of domestic and foreign tourists visit the Peak Shrine every summer.
Volcanic eruption history
About 11,000 years ago, a large amount of lava began to erupt from the west side of the top of the ancient Fuji mountain. These lava formed the new Fuji which is the main body of Mount Fuji. Since then, the tops of the ancient Fuji and the new Fuji are side by side. About 2500-2800 years ago, the top part of ancient Fuji caused a large-scale landslide due to weathering, and finally only the top of Shin-Fuji remained.
It is estimated that during the 3000 years from 11,000 to 8,000 years ago, the top of Mt. Fuji continued to emit lava. Since then, there have been no new eruptions at the top of the mountain, but side volcanoes such as Nagao Mountain and Baoyong Mountain still have intermittent eruptions.
The written records of eruption in history include: “Yenli eruption” in 800-802 AD (19-21 years in Japan), and Zhenguan eruption in 864 (6 years of Sadakan, Japan). The last eruption of Mount Fuji was in 1707 (the 4th year of Hoei in Japan). This time the thick smoke from Mount Hoei reached the stratosphere in the atmosphere. The volcanic ash that fell in Edo (now known as Tokyo) at that time was 4 centimeters thick. thick. Since then, volcanic earthquakes and smoke eruptions have been continuously observed, and it is generally believed that there is still the possibility of eruptions in the future.
According to a drilling survey conducted by the Seismological Research Institute of the University of Tokyo in April 2004, there are still more ancient mountains under the above three mountains. This fourth mountain was named Xianxiao Mitake.
The first recorded eruption in history was in 800 AD, and the most recent one was in 1707. The violent eruption at that time made Edo (now Tokyo) a cage more than 100 kilometers away. Thick volcanic ash, and the vast plains surrounding Mt. Fuji have always had strong volcanic activity.
Po Wing Shan
Bao Nagayama (Mizuho u e-i za san, Houeizan) around Mount Fuji is the most prominent type of parasitic volcano, formed in Japan Yong Li Bao four years. It is located on the southeast slope of Mount Fuji, with an elevation of 2693 meters. On the west side of Baoyong Mountain, there is a huge crater.
Groundwater in the region of Mount Fuji down the rain and snow, in the form of surface and groundwater pulse emission, there are four main attractions: Oshino sea, the white line waterfalls, snow-shrouded Mount Fuji persimmon
Tagawa, Chung Yu Chi.
In the surrounding crater about 800 meters in diameter on Mount Fuji, a total of eight mountains:
- Jianfeng (Japan highest peak) 3776 meters
- Baishan Yue (release Jia Yue) 3756 m
- Izu Yue (Amitabha mountain) 3740 m
- Asahi Yue (great day mountain) 3730 m
- potential to Yue (Yue achievement) 3730 m
- Mishima Yue (Yue Monju) 3730 m
- long shall Zhi Yue (Yue pharmacist) 3720 m
- Komagatake (Asama Yue) 3710 m
Mount Fuji Sengen Shrine on the top of Mount Fuji is used to worship the gods of Mount Fuji. Therefore, the 3.85 million square meters of land above the eighth station of Mt. However, as the boundary between Shizuoka Prefecture and Yamanashi Prefecture could not be determined, the land ownership registration was not obtained.
The deity enshrined in the Sengen Taisha Shrine is the goddess “Kikakai Yehime”, which appears in the mythology of Jiji. However, it is still unclear when this goddess became the god who protects Mount Fuji.
he legends about the gods of Mount Fuji and the gods of Mount Tsukuba are recorded in the ancient history of Hitachi. It is said that the Tenjin visited the residence of the Mount Fuji god and asked to stay overnight, but was turned away by the owner on the grounds that he was fasting. Later, Tenjin visited Mount Tsukuba and asked to stay overnight, but was welcomed. Therefore, there has been a constant flow of people on Mount Tsukuba since then, but Mount Fuji has been punished by snow all year round.
In the Heian period’s literary work “Gengji Diary”, it was recorded that some people believed that the god of Mount Fuji could determine the personnel turnover of the imperial court in the following year.
In the Edo period, climbing Mount Fuji became popular among ordinary people. Due to their strong belief in Mount Fuji, the civilians have piled up many Fuji mounds in various places in Edo. The so-called “Fuji Mound” is an artificial hill made of dirt where you can overlook Mount Fuji. There is also a Sengen Shrine on the top of the hill for worship. Therefore, people who cannot go to Mount Fuji can experience the feeling of climbing Mount Fuji locally. Many such Fuji mounds are named “Mount Asama” or “Mount Asakuma”. In addition, there is also a custom of building a stele of Sengen Shrine from the harbor overlooking Mount Fuji.
Against the background of the rising belief in Mount Fuji, many new religions mixed with Shintoism and Buddhism based on the belief in Mount Fuji were born in the Edo period. These religions taught and established organizations in Edo, many of which were of a threat to the shogunate, and were suppressed by the shogunate. These religions were preserved during the Meiji Restoration, and have their origins with the current Taoism, Maruyama, and Fuso. Even in modern times, there are many organizations based on the belief in Mount Fuji. For example, Aum Shinrikyo and the Three Laws of the Hokkaido have established their headquarters in the foothills of Mount Fuji.
Mount Fuji legend
an old man, called Benedict Lang. He makes a living by weaving bamboo baskets. One day, Dongfang was just bright, and Atsushi, as usual, cut back a bundle of bamboo from the bamboo forest and sat down to work. Suddenly he heard a soft voice: “Hello!” Atsushi answered casually, “Hello”, then stood up and looked around, but there was not even a single figure, so he sat down and did it again. To live, I just took a bamboo tube and tried to split it. The soft voice rang again, as if he was next to his ear: “Hello!”
Atsushi looked around, but he still didn’t see a single figure. Looking into the bamboo tube, it turned out that there was a small girl in the bamboo tube. He poured the little girl out, placed it on his palm, and looked at it carefully for a while: it was a pretty handsome girl! “Where did you come from? Why are you so little?” the old craftsman asked. The voice of the little girl’s answer is still so soft and pleasant: “I was born in the moon palace. The girls there are all so small, but we grow up very fast. It wont take long before we will grow up to be big girls.” “The girl in the moon palace? Why did you run on our ground?” “Last night, I went to play on the quiet road next to the moon palace. The scenery there is very beautiful, I was fascinated for a while, walking, walking, accidentally When I fell, I fell on your ground. Fortunately, I fell into the bamboo pipe. Otherwise, I’m afraid I would break.” “So, what should I do to this handsome girl?” Atsushi thought. Said to himself. “Accept me as a daughter!” said the little girl, “I can help you weave a bamboo basket, cook for you, plant flowers and vegetables, and wash your clothes.”
“Okay, stay.” Old The craftsman said kindly, “From today, you are my little daughter, and your name is Sanzhuo!” Sanzhuo stayed and lived with Atsuru. She is diligent and helps the old craftsman to weave baskets and wash clothes. The little girl really grows up very fast. She grows up day and night, and soon she will grow into a beautiful big girl.
Not far from the old craftsman’s house, there is a blacksmith, he is a happy, strong young man. The young blacksmith is ingenious, he can easily make all kinds of exquisite works of art from gold, silver, copper, iron, and even gems. The blacksmith worked in the shop all day while singing happily.
One day, the blacksmith saw Shanzhuo and fell in love with her immediately. Shanzhuo also liked the blacksmith. The blacksmith said affectionately to Xian Zhuzi: “Let’s get married, Shan Zhuzi.” Shan Zhuzi replied shyly, “Tomorrow you come to my house to beg you, my old father decides our affairs.”
When the blacksmith and the mountain While Bamboo was saying his heartfelt words, three noble princes from neighboring countries visited the old craftsman’s house. The first one to enter the hut was Prince Ichitaro. He said to Atsushi: “Marry me your daughter Yamazushi. ! If you do not agree, I will order you to be thrown into the sea to feed the fish, and I will hear the answer tomorrow.”
The prince Cangshi followed him, and he said, “Marry your daughter Shanzhuo. Me! If you don’t agree, I will order you to be thrown into the ravine to feed the tiger. I will hear the answer tomorrow.”
The prince Daoda who walked into the hut finally said, “Marry me your daughter Shanzhuo. ! If you do not agree, I will order your head to be cut off! Tomorrow I will hear the answer.” “What should I do?” the old craftsman thought about it, not sure to pay attention. He was sad. At this moment, Sanzhuo returned home, and Atsushi told her all this. Shan Zhuo said: “It doesn’t matter. I will deal with them tomorrow.”
The next morning, the first person who came to the old craftsman’s house was Prince Ichitaro. Shan Zhuo politely asked him beside the threshold: “I heard that you are going to beg my family. Is it true?”
“Where is there a fake? I came for this.” The mountain bamboo said: “If you love me sincerely, I hope you can prove it with your actions. India has an iron wine glass, It is as thin as Jingshan’s wings. It is filled with diamonds. There is a hideous monster guarding it day and night. If you really love me, then use your bravery and wisdom to take it back as a dowry gift! Waiting for you for a hundred days.”
“Be sure to do it, you wait for my good news!” Ichitaro said, and said goodbye. Ichitaro met the prince Kurashiki and Michita on the road, and said to them arrogantly: “You are late, and Meiren Shanzhuo has promised to marry me. I will invite you to come and have a wedding wine in the future.” Kurashiki and Michita heard With this news, I had to go back dingy. As I walked, Ichitaro thought: “Why should I go looking for a monster? I want a wine glass of diamonds, which I have in my house. Now I only need to ask a skilled blacksmith to hit an iron wine glass.”
Ichitaro called the servant and said, “Go and find A skillful blacksmith, make an iron goblet for me. It must be as thin as a dragonfly’s wings. If he can play well, I will give him double the wages.”
The blacksmith spent a whole month to finish this one. Exquisite wine glass. The servant took the wine glass away, but did not pay the blacksmith. Ninety-nine days passed. On the hundredth day, the prince Ichitaro put on a tuxedo, holding this iron wine glass filled with diamonds, swaggering to the ground Atsuro’s house came.
He offered the wine glass under the mountain bamboo skirt, and cheekily lied: “In order to get this wine glass, I worked hard to get this wine glass, and sailed for forty days in the sea through wind and waves. Forty-first day. , I just stepped onto the land of India. There I had a bloody battle with the monster who guarded the wine cup for several rounds. The monster was very aggressive. He had four necks and two heads in each neck. It was scary! In the life and death fight, I almost died several times. Because I was fearless and never retreated, I finally cut off the eight heads of the monster and brought back this wine glass filled with diamonds. I will present it to you as a dowry, according to the previous agreement. Let’s hold the wedding today!”
The honest old craftsman heard Ichitaro’s account and was very touched. He said: “This noble prince proved with actions that he is brave and his love is steadfast. Now I Just invite guests to the wedding!”
But before Atsushi’s forefoot had not crossed the threshold, a young blacksmith came at the door. He saluted the prince Ichitaro and said, “Your honorable prince, you promised me, I will do it for you. You pay me double the wages for the iron wine glass, but your servant did not give me a son. In that case, the wine glass should belong to me.”
The blacksmith poured the diamonds from the wine glass on the ground, held the wine glass in both hands, and said to the mountain bamboo: “I dedicate it to you. Although there are no diamonds in it, it is full of my deep affection for you.”
After that, the blacksmith again Go back to the shop. Shanzhuzi took the wine glass, pressed it to his chest, and said to Ichiro: “I don’t want to be the wife of a liar, please leave here!”
Ichitaro was so ashamed that he covered his face with a fan and slipped out of the old craftsman’s house. . As soon as he left his front foot, the prince Cangshi came. He said to Yamazushi, “I’m here to attend the wedding of the prince Ichitaro. Where is the respected Ichitaro?” “He is a coward and a liar! I will marry him forever.” “Then marry me.” I am brave and faithful.” “I really want to test you.” Shanzhuo cut off Cangshi’s words and said, “There is a floating Penglai Mountain in the East China Sea. There is a strange cherry tree on the mountain with a tree body. Golden, the branch is silver, the fruit is diamond, and three tigers guard it day and night. If you are really brave and faithful. Then you go to Penglai Mountain and bring back a cherry branch with diamond fruit, to I’ll be the bride price.”
“No problem! Wait! A hundred days later, you will invite guests to our wedding!” After saying that, he left, walking on the road, Cangshi’s mouse eyes turned around. Turning: “Why should I travel thousands of miles to find Pengcai Mountain? Just ask a skilled blacksmith to solve the problem.” Cangshi walked into the iron shop and said to the blacksmith: “You can strike a cherry branch for me, branch. It’s silver, and the branch bears the fruit of diamond diamonds. After it’s done, I will pay three times the wages.” The blacksmith started working, his eyes were not closed for 30 days, and the fire would not go out for a month. On the limited day, the prince Cangshi came to fetch the cherry branches. When he looked at the shining silver cherry branches, he couldn’t remember how happy he was. Holding cherry blossoms and picking branches, he hurried to the old craftsman’s house, and what about the blacksmith’s wages? –sorry! I forgot to go outside the Nine Clouds.
The prince Cangshi came to the old craftsman’s house, and the old craftsman and the mountain bamboo weave a bamboo basket on the side of the threshold. Cangshi offered the cherry branch under the mountain bamboo skirt, and said without shame: “In order to pick and break this priceless cherry branch. I am not afraid of dangers, not afraid of the stormy waves. I floated on the sea for forty years in a boat. On the day, the typhoon broke the mast, and the huge waves smashed the ship’s side. Because I was not afraid to go forward and forward against the wind and waves. On the forty-first day, I saw a high mountain floating in front of the ship. Towering into the clouds. I worked hard to climb the mountain, until I reached the top of the mountain, I found the strange cherry tree: The tree is gold, the branches are silver, and the fruit is diamonds. Three colourful tigers guard it. They saw it. I roared. Pounced at me. At this time, I only remembered your instructions in my heart. I put life and death out of my mind. I drew out my sharp sword, chopped left and right stabs, and fought hard for a long time, finally cutting off a tiger. Head, cut off the sole of the foot of another tiger, and the third tiger ran away with its injured tail. I broke a cherry branch with diamond fruits and brought it back to you as a bride price. According to the previous It is agreed that we will have the wedding today!” The old craftsman heard the narration of the prince Cangshi and was deeply moved. He said: “This noble prince confirmed with his actions that he is indeed a brave and loyal man. , Now I’m going to invite guests to the wedding!”
Before Atsushi’s forefoot had crossed the threshold, a young blacksmith came at the door. He saluted the prince Cangshi and said, “Your honorable prince, you made a promise before. , If I make a cherry branch, you will pay me three times the wages. But you forgot, and you didn’t give me any of them. In that case, the cherry branch should belong to me.”
The blacksmith held the cherry branch in both hands, right Mountain bamboo said: “I dedicate it to you to show my deep affection for you.”
After speaking, the blacksmith went back to the shop. Shanzhuo took the cherry branch and got close to his heart, and said to Cangshi: “I don’t want to be the wife of a liar, please leave here!” Cangshi was ashamed, covered his face with a fan, and quickly ran away.
As soon as he slipped away, he came to the Prince Dao Da. He said to Shanzhuzi: “I came to the wedding. Where is the noble bride? Where is the honorable groom?” “Cangshi is a coward and a liar!” Shanzhuzi replied, “I will never marry “His.” “Then marry me! I am the real warrior and gentleman!” “It’s nothing to say, just prove it with action!” Shan Zhuo cut off the big words and said, “The southwest side of the sea. There is a vast country, and it is China. On the east coast of China, there are a pair of golden birds. They are only the size of small fingernails and each has 10,000 feathers on their small wings. A ten fierce dragon guards them day and night. If you are a true warrior and gentleman, then go get this pair of golden birds back as a dowry!”
“Give me a one-hundred-day period. You just wait for my good news!” Dao replied too firmly. This Taoist is really better than the first two, he really got on the boat and sailed to China. The sea is calm and calm. Dao Dao sailed for two days, but the sea did not rise. On the third day, Dao couldn’t help bragging: “I Dao is a real warrior, fearless, Sea Dragon King, what is it? When it touches my hand, I have to cut off its head. It’s easy to get a pair of golden birds.”
The Sea Dragon King was furious when he heard this. Suddenly, it was dimly dark, and the strong wind set off a bad wave and fell over! Dao Da’s boat was about to turn over.
Dao was so frightened that his face was pale, and his whole body was shaking like a sieve. He knelt down and prayed: “Forgive me, Dragon King. The little ignorant, who said the wrong thing, spare my life as a dog. I dare not think about the golden bird anymore, nor do I dare think about the mountain bamboo. Hearing the coward’s plea, the Sea Dragon King was moved with pity. It vented its anger, the wind stopped in the sky and the clouds dispersed, and the waves calmed down. But the ship was blown away long ago, and continued to sail on the sea. At night, the ship came to shore. A bright moon rose behind the mountain. Dao Tai went ashore to look at it and was taken aback. It turned out that the ship had returned to the place where it started—the village where Shanzhuo lived.
“Wait!” Dao hesitated too much, “I once boasted to Shanzhuo that I wanted to bring the Golden Bird back to her. But how do I explain to her now? Do you want to admit this ugly voyage? No, no! Shanzhuo! Bamboo doesn’t want to be the wife of a coward.” Suddenly, the sound of a hammer awakened Tao Tai from his contemplation.
“It’s a blacksmith! Before dawn, he started to work.” Dao had an idea: “Yes, go to the blacksmith!”
Dao walked towards the iron shop too quickly.
“Take a pair of golden birds for me!” He told the blacksmith: “The size of a small fingernail, and there must be 10,000 feathers on the small wings. After this is done, I will reward you with generous wages, and I will never break my word. !”
The blacksmith kept hammering his hands and the furnace did not turn off. After three months of hard work, I finally finished a pair of golden birds: as big as small nails, with 10,000 feathers on each small wing. The golden bird stood in the hands of the blacksmith as if it were alive, as if it was about to fly from the hands of the blacksmith.
As soon as the golden bird was finished, Daotai came. He impatiently took the pair of golden birds from the blacksmith, turned around and ran to the mountain bamboo house without saying a word of kindness. He offered the golden bird to Shanzhuzi and said, “I have fulfilled your instructions, and you should fulfill your promise. Let’s get married today!” “But,” Shanzhuzi said, “I would love to hear it. You are How did you go west to China to get the golden birds?”
Dao Tai blinked his eyes, and the lie also poured out like a river that opened the gate: “My ship sailed west for forty days, and the wind was fighting along the way. Fighting waves, untold hardships, on the forty-first day, I boarded the coast of China. There I saw a ten-headed fierce dragon. After a fierce blood battle, I finally chopped off its nine heads. Just when I waved When the sword was about to chop off its last head, the cowardly Dragon King knelt down and begged: “Spare my life, you take the golden bird away! “I pity it, forgive it, and leave it a dog! Bring the golden bird back.” Before Mrs. Tao finished speaking, a young blacksmith came at the door: “Honorable Prince Tao! I’ll fight for you. For this pair of little golden birds, you promised to give me generous rewards, but you didn’t give a penny. Since you don’t speak credit, then the golden birds should belong to me.”
The blacksmith held up the golden birds in both hands and dedicated them to Mountain bamboo: “I dedicate this pair of golden birds to you. May we be like this pair of golden birds and never separate.”
Shanzhuzi stood up excitedly, walked to the blacksmith, stood side by side with him affectionately, and said to Tao Tai: “I don’t want to be the wife of a coward and a liar, please leave here!” Before Shanzhuzi issued the order to remove guests. , Tao Tai slipped away wittily. Shan Zhuo smiled happily. She said to the blacksmith: “Don’t look at these noble princes who are well-dressed and decent, they are some dirty-hearted cowards and liars. You are a clever, hardworking and honest person, let us live together!”
She just said. After that, the bright sun disappeared, and a gloomy moon rose in the dark sky.
Shanzhuzi ran out and took a look. She clapped her hands in horror and burst into tears. She said, “I see, this is the anger of the Moon God. She forbids me to fall in love with the people on the ground, and orders me to return to the Moon Palace immediately.”
“No, no, we want to be together forever!” The blacksmith swore with a hammer, “I will guard you day and night. Never let the moon god take you away.” Shanzhuo said nothing, just despair Shook his head. Shanzhuzi and her old father walked into the house to rest, while the young blacksmith guarded the door. But the magical moon god shone the gloomy silver light on the blacksmith, and the blacksmith fell asleep immediately. In the middle of the night, the Moon God sent her Luo to come and take away the mountain bamboo. The clouds and mist flew towards the hut. They easily opened the closed door and broke into Shanzhuzi’s home.
Shan Zhuzi was awakened from his dream and stubbornly said: “I will not return to the Moon Palace, I will stay on the ground, with the blacksmith, and never be separated.” Luluo of the Moon God took out a beautiful box and said cunningly. “The benevolent Moon God promised to let you get married. Look, this is a gift from the Moon God.”
They opened the box, and there was a shiny silver dress inside, which was more beautiful than the queen’s dress. Shanzhuo believed these nonsense and put on this beautiful dress with confidence. In the end, this is not an ordinary garment, but a magic garment. Whoever puts it on will immediately forget the past. Only the sun’s rays can release its magic. As soon as Shanzhuo put on the magic clothes, he forgot her old father and her beloved blacksmith. Luluo sent by the Moon God made the mountain bamboo sit on the clouds, left the ground, and soared to the vast sky.
At this moment, the blacksmith woke up and ran into the house. Only the old craftsman was left in the house, and the mountain bamboo was gone.
The blacksmith hurriedly ran out the door and looked up. A cloud was leaving the ground and slowly soaring to the sky. He immediately understood that Shanzhuo let the Luluo sent by the Moon God take away. The angry blacksmith took the hammer and chased behind the clouds. He chased for several hours, but still did not catch up. At this moment, the cloud stopped on the top of a high mountain, and the blacksmith hurried up to the top of the mountain and shouted: “Mountain bamboo, mountain bamboo! I’m here to save you!” However, the cloud flew up again, quickly. Fly to the moon palace. The blacksmith was helpless and distraught. He slammed the hilltop with a hammer in despair, venting his anger. The top of the mountain split open, and from the cracks bursting flames shot straight toward the clouds. The clouds were ignited by the fire, and the Moon God’s lords were all burned to death. Only the mountain bamboo was safe and the magic clothes protected her. The mountain bamboo fell down and landed on the top of the high mountain. The blacksmith happily ran to her, pulled her and shouted: “Run, get out of here, hide, and the Moon God will send you to hunt down you in a while.” However, the poor mountain bamboo is dressed in clothes. Moyi, she forgot about the blacksmith. Looking at the blacksmith is like looking at a stranger. “Who are you?” Shanzhuo angrily pushed the blacksmith away, and said, “Get away, what do you want to do with me?” The unfortunate blacksmith felt indescribable, and he jumped into the crack in the mountain with pain. At this moment, the sun rose, and its golden light shone on the magic clothes worn by the mountain bamboo, the power of the magic clothes disappeared, and the mountain bamboo immediately remembered everything: how the moon god Lulu took her away, blacksmith How did she rescue her, how did she push the blacksmith away roughly, how did the blacksmith jump into the crack of the mountain in despair. She screamed sorrowfully: “Beloved blacksmith, waiting for me, I want to go with you!” The scream of Shanzhuzi still echoed in the air, and she also jumped into the crack in the mountain.
Ten thousand years have passed since Mangosteen Yu and the blacksmith disappeared from the ground. However, people still remember them. Many people said that the mountain bamboo and the blacksmith were not dead, they avoided the moon god and lived happily in the underground palace. When they lighted a fire to cook, a blaze burst out of the cracks on the top of the mountain, and a curl of smoke rose up. From then on, people called this big mountain Mount Fuji, which means Immortal Mountain.
Due to the eruption of the volcanic crater, Mount Fuji has formed numerous caves at the foot of the mountain, and some caves still have jet phenomenon. The walls of the most beautiful Fuyuefeng Cave are covered with stalactite-like icicles, which remain untouched all year round and are regarded as a rare spectacle. There are two large and small craters on the top of the mountain, a large crater with a diameter of about 800 meters and a depth of 200 meters. When the weather is fine, watching the sunrise from the top of the mountain and watching the sea of clouds is an indispensable tourist item for tourists from all over the world to come to Japan.
