Mt. Fuji or Fujiyama. It is the highest mountain (3,776m or 12,285ft) in Japan and is world-famous for its superb conical form. This symbol of the beautiful land is located on the border of Shizuoka and Yamanashi Prefectures. Although it has been dormant, it is classified by geologists as an active volcano. To the Japanese mind, Fuji-san is much more than a single volcano. It is regarded as a sacred object, and the climbing of Mt. Fuji has long been a religious practice. It has exerted a great influence upon Japanese culture. Throughout the history of Japanese art and literature, this holy mountain has been the subject of uncountable poems and pictures. The yearning for greatness and beauty symbolised by Fuji-san led the ancients to name many local mountains and towns after this beautiful mountain. (Bates Hoffer, An English Dictionary of Japanese Culture)

The background music you are listening to is titled Renkan-Jokyoku. It is the work of Inada-no-Umahijiri, and is played on the Shakuhachi - the traditional Japanese bamboo flute.
