Japan - Mount Fuji & Cherry Blossoms

The symbols of Japan, as viewed from Kawaguchi Lake.

This is from Wikipedia : Mount Fuji (富士山, Fuji-san?, IPA: [ɸɯꜜdʑisaɴ]) is the highest mountain in Japan at 3,776 m (12,388 ft).[1] Along with Mount Tate and Mount Haku, it is one of Japan's "Three Holy Mountains" (三霊山 Sanreizan). An active stratovolcano[3] that last erupted in 1707–08, Mount Fuji is just west of Tokyo, and can be seen from there on a clear day. Mount Fuji's exceptionally symmetrical cone is a well-known symbol of Japan and it is frequently depicted in art and photographs, as well as visited by sightseers and climbers.
