    Mount Fuji is a symbol of the beauty of the nature as a whole in Japan, indeed, in a way, of the Japanese character. It is hardly surprising that Mount Fuji has always been a main theme of visual arts. To draw Mount Fuji in all its moods means to depict the essence of Japan.
    Edwin O. Reischauer, US Ambassador, Japan 1961–66.
