Here's how it looked the last time it erupted, in 1707-8 (contemporary depiction the Smithsonian considers correct).

A Mount Fuji eruption would not be catastrophic for the planet. It is not a super volcano. Get your hands out of your pants and zip up your jeans.

Send some of our guys over there to do some fracking. I heard it is supposed to relieve pressure around critical pressure areas. Plus, they might get some free oil.

Maybe frogs are believed to cause volcanic eruptions... Like the belief in Japan that catfish cause earthquakes.
