Unfortunately those maps show historic seismicity. There are NOT dozens of quakes round Fuji-san at this time.
Just double chacked. The only quake showing over 4.0 is the 6.0. There are no other quakes other than a few smaller ones under 4.0.

Mt Fuji is privately owned above the eighth station. Fujisan Hongu Sengentaisha, a Shizuoka-based Shinto shrine, was granted the land in 1609.
The strongest activity at southern Japan’s Shinmoedake volcano in 52 years shattered windows four miles away, sending hundreds of people fleeing the area.Ash and other volcanic debris soared more than 6,000 feet into the atmosphere above Kyushu Island, about 950 miles from the epicenter of the catastrophic 9.0 magnitude quake off Honshu two days earlier.
Officials said it was unclear if the volcanic blast was related to the temblor.
Jakarta, Indonesia (CNN) -- Up to 1,200 people have fled an active volcano in northern Indonesia, disaster officials said Monday.
Ash clouds from Mount Karangetang reached 7,500 feet (2,300 meters) over the weekend, with lava reported flowing down the mountainside.
Since 1955, the volcano has erupted 100-200 times a year. In 1994, there were 126 eruptions and on May 23, 1995 an explosive eruption sent ash 8,200 feet above the summit crater. Houses on SakurajimaAsh falls up to 143 times per year, depositing an average of 100mm annually. People can be seen walking around the town, or sometimes even in Kagoshima City, with umbrellas to protect their clothes and skin from falling ash. Read more: www.japanvisitor.com...
Lava from Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano was shooting as high as 80 feet in the air Sunday after the collapse of the floor of the volcano's Pu'u 'O'o crater a day earlier.
Yoon Young-geun, a North Korean volcanologist, also said that following the quake in Japan, they observed underground water shaking and splashing up to 60 centimeters, with usually clean water from wells occasionally turning muddy
He said all of the abnormal events seem to be related to the 9.0-magnitude earthquake that hit northeastern Japan on March 11.
Many South Korean scientists have cautiously raised speculation that an eruption could take place in four to five years. They have claimed “strange signs,” including minor trembling near Mt. Baekdu in June 2002, and the frequency has increased.
