Sunrise over Mount Zaō in Japan
Postcard JP-463262 from Japan shows a photo of beautiful sunrise at Mount Zaō (蔵王山) in Japan. Among the one hundred most famous mountains in Japan, Mount Zaō is a complex volcano that consists of a cluster of stratovolcanoes built up by layers of hardened lava, tephra, pumice, and volcanic ash. (Sources: Wikipedia) It is noted for a 360 m or 1,200 ft wide and 60 m or 200 ft deep crater lake Five Color Pond (五色沼) as the lake would change color depending on the weather.
