Tokyo, Feb. 7 (CNA) Alpine associations from Taiwan and Japan signed an agreement on Friday that established friendship ties between Yushan, the highest mountain in Taiwan, and Mount Fuji in Japan. The Chinese Taipei Alpine Association and the Mount Fuji Association sealed the agreement in Fujiyoshida in Yamanashi Prefecture, Japanese news agency Kyodo News reported. Ho Chung-da, the head of the Taiwanese group, said he hoped the mountain ties would draw more Japanese to Taiwan to hike on the 3,952-meter-high Yushan, also known as Jade Mountain. Mount Fuji is Japan's highest mountain at 3,776 meters. It was selected as a cultural heritage by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization last year.
