Mount Fuji provides a backdrop to a fireworks display at Lake Yamanaka, one of five lakes at the northern base of the volcano. Resort towns around the volcano sponsor summer festivals featuring elaborate displays of hanabi (fireworks). The line of diagonal lights extending up the right-hand side of Fuji-san are mountain huts along the ten stations of the Fuji-Yoshida climbing route, the most popular of the six major summer ascent routes.
