All of Singapore celebrates the day the country achieved its independence every 9th of August 9. On the eve of Singapore’s National Day, you’ll want to be by Marina Bay to see all the public displays of culture, diversity, heritage, and the breathtaking fireworks show over the waters, of course!
Mount Fuji – or Fujisan in Japanese – is the highest peak in the Fuji volcanic chain in central Japan and is the country's highest and most beautiful mountain. Almost perfectly round, its symmetrical form has long been celebrated in poetry and painting. The best known of these homages to this beautiful mountain can be found in the 8th-century verses of Yamabe Akahito, and the series of woodcuts, Views of Fuji, by Hokusai at the turn of the 19th century.
