Japan’s highest peak, Mt. Fuji, is an enduring and revered symbol of Japanese culture. Its majestic, picturesque beauty has captivated so many people both within Japan, and around the world. Mt. Fuji was registered as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site in 2013. When written with different Kanji or Chinese character the word “Fuji” can have various auspicious meanings, including “immortality,” “eternal longevity,” or even “unparalleled”. These associations, along with its status as Japan’s highest peak, have helped to make Mt. Fuji an important cultural icon, as well as a symbol of high goals, strong ideals and success. The incorporation of the Dragon, a legendary symbol of power, luck, and wisdom, only adds to this instrument's incredible beauty.Thinking nostalgically about the kinds of aspirations Namiki's founder had at the time of the original company’s foundation, that his brand would one day be to to the world of fountain pens what Mt. Fuji is to the world's mountains, the company has adopted a Mt. Fuji motif for the fountain pens commemorating their 100th anniversary.This Yukari-sized pen has a 14k gold nib in size #5, fills via cartridge/converter (a CON-70 is included), and comes packaged in a wooden box. Each pen takes months to create.
