MOUNT FUJI – JAPAN’S SYMBOLIC MOUTAIN & SO MUCH MORE
Recently designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site of outstanding universal value, Japan’s symbolic Mount Fuji has been the object of worship since ancient times. Dating back as early as the 11th century, various artists and poets have depicted the various faces that the sacred mountain shows in each of the 4 seasons. Professional and amateur photographers flock to the surrounding area to capture images of Fuji above the cherry blossoms in spring, its clear reflection glinting on the lake in summer, the glorious harmony with the red and golden leaves in autumn or the snow-capped peak soaring majestically into the blue sky in winter.
