Nigorisawa bares its teeth

Nigorisawa bares its teeth – This ragged corner of Hassawa collects all the detritus of passing typhoons and fly tipping humans. But take a closer look and you’ll see that something else has left its mark, too. A one metre thick line of ash and pumice in the side of the gorge from the last time Fuji woke up – in December 1707. It’s a stark reminder that everyone’s favourite mountain also has some pretty frightening teeth to bare.
