Note 1: yama, san, zan, take, and dake attached after the mountain name are words meaning “Mt.” in Japanese. Therefore, “Fuji-san” and “Mt.Fuji” are the same. Also, it is often written as “Mt. Takao” or “Mt.Okuhotakadake”.

Note 2: As a general rule, mountains are listed from north to south within each area. However, it is irregular when the mountain ridge changes. The mountains on the border of the area are in the north or east area.
