The Kita-dake is after the Mt. Fuji (3'776 m) the second highest mountain in Japan. Together the three mountains Kita-dake (3'193 m), Aino-dake (3'189 m) and Mt. Nōtori (3'026 m) are called "Shiranesanzan", which means "Three White Summits". The name Kita-dake literally means "northern mountain," referring to its being the northernmost of the three mountains.
The stamp is showing a view from the north (Kaikomagatake) towards the Kita-dake (foreground) and Aino-dake (background left side).
