Mt Lassen, the last active volcano in California in 1917, can be seen from Cobb Mtn 135 miles away. Mt Shasta is our equivalent of Japan's Mt Fuji, and although 3700ft higher than Lassen, it is hidden from Cobb by intervening mountains.
As for Fuji and Shasta, try this if you have an opportunity. Given the season and weather, it is an exhilerating experience to take the non-stop flight from Osaka to San Francisco (left window seat) and pass by Mt Fuji in the late afternoon light, the last sight of Japan, then the next morning see Mt Shasta as the first sight of America.
