The greater part of the Japanese landmass is made up of mountains. Japan's mountains, together with the adjoining highlands, form beautiful landscapes coloured with diverse expressions, which change with each of the four seasons. Mt. Fuji and many other mountains of Japan are objects of worship. Both designated as World Heritage Sites, Shirakami-Sanchi in northern Japan is famous for its primeval beech forests, while Yakushima in southern Japan is well-known for its primeval subtropical forests and gigantic trees.
