The Japan Map Center on Monday released an online guide to locations where Mount Fuji can be viewed, showing that the nation’s renowned 3,776-meter volcano can be observed from as far as 300 km away.

The map, entitled Fuji-san Koko, which roughly translates as Mount Fuji Here, overlays red marks on a map of Japan to show where the country’s tallest peak, which straddles Yamanashi and Shizuoka prefectures, should be viewable if no obstacles are in the way. The map was compiled through topographical calculations.
