    July 31, 781: Mount Fuji erupts. It was the earliest known eruption of the mountain, which is frequently depicted in Japanese art. This 19th century woodblock print by Katsushika Hokusai is titled "The Great Wave off Kanagawa" and is part of his "36 Views of Mount Fuji" which depicts the famous mountain differing seasons and weather conditions. (There are actually 46 prints -- the series proved so popular that he added 10 more.)
