Via Postcrossing, today I sent the same postcard to two persons – one to Finland and the other to Ukraine. If the person’s profile doesn’t say much about his/her specific preference on postcards but just says something like “anything famous in your country”, I often send a postcard of Mt. Fuji. :)
Mt. Fuji is our highest and most famous mountain in Japan with 3,776m (about 12,388 feet) located about 100km (62mi) south-west of Tokyo. You can see Mt. Fuji from Tokyo on a clear day. Its shape of almost perfectly symmetrical cone is what makes the Mt. Fuji so significant and beautiful. It is one of the most popular subjects of Japanese art,; for example, 36 Views of Mt. Fuji by Katsushika Hokusai, famous Japanese UKIYOE artist.
This picture was taken last December when I visited there, and it was just gorgeous! I took a long walk by the lake enjoying the beautiful Mt. Fuji. It’s not too far from Tokyo where I live, so I visit there every once in a while to escape from the “concrete jungle” in Tokyo. :)
