Rishiri Island

Rishiri Island (利尻島 Rishiri-tō) is an island in the Sea of Japan off the coast of Hokkaido, Japan. It is part of Hokkaido Prefecture, and is divided between two towns, Rishiri and Rishirifuji. The island is formed by the cone-shaped extinct volcanic peak of Mount Rishiri.

Mount Rishiri (利尻山, Rishiri-zan) is a quaternary stratovolcano located off the coast of Hokkaidō, Japan in the Sea of Japan. The extinct volcano rises out of the sea forming Rishiri Island. Because its cone shape resembles Mount Fuji it is sometimes referred to as Rishiri Fuji. It is one of the 100 famous mountains in Japan.
