This beautiful card comes from Naoko. Naoko lives in Taiwan however she is from Japan and the card shows her home town Fuji and Mount Fuji. She writes that Fuji is famous for paper manufacturing, but perhaps even more famous for it's magnificent Mt. Fuji.
Mt. Fuji is Japan's most iconic volcano and highest mountain. It has been worshiped as sacred mountain for centuries and has immeasurable impact on Japanese culture, while it is recognized as a symbol of Japan across the world. Mount Fuji was officially recognized as a World Heritage Site at the annual UNESCO conference being held in Cambodia on June 22, 2013.
