More info

As one of the most beautiful mountains in the world, the illustrious volcano Fuji is located on the coast of Japan. With its 3,776 m in height, it’s the highest mountain in Japan and a popular excursion destination. For hundreds of years its nearly symmetrical volcanic cone has been a popular motive for artists.

The Shintoism’s holy mountain name is shrouded in many myths and legends. It is believed that the name originates from wisteria or rainbows. However the most logical explanation is that the word Fuji originates from the Ainu language. For the native Japanese, Fuji quite simply means “Fire”.

Nelumbo is a genus of aquatic plants with large, showy flowers resembling the water lily, but not closely related to it. It is commonly called lotus, though this name may be applied to other genera, and there is an unrelated genus Lotus. The generic name is derived from the Sinhalese word Nelum. There are only two known living species in the genus. The sacred lotus (N. nucifera) is native to Asia, and is the better known of the two. It is commonly cultivated, and also used in Chinese medicine and cooking. This species is the national flower of Egypt, India and Vietnam.
