With the outbreak of the COVID-19 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC international travel and Japan sightseeing excursions have come to a halt. With few new tour bookings and oodles of time – we at My Tokyo Guide took this occasion to redesign our Mt. Fuji T-Shirt for the upcoming Mt. Fuji climbing season. We have been working on creating an ultimate Mt. Fuji T-Shirt for some time now and the added time has just strengthened our determination. Our purpose was to design a unique souvenir that not only represents the charms of Mt. Fuji and Japan but also to create a practical T-Shirt that can actually be worn while climbing Mt. Fuji.
Ultimate Mt. Fuji Souvenir T-Shirt: We steered far away from the typical cotton-based Fuji T-shirts that you may find at most souvenir shops. After changing the material, design and color again, again and again we finally came up with a design and color that we felt best incorporates characteristic of the Mt. Fuji culture as well as a sensible material that real hikers could wear while hiking.
T-Shirt Material: Unlike your typical regular cotton T-shirts our original Mt. Fuji T-shirts are made with High Quality 100% Polyester, Ultralight, Quick DryingBreathable Fabric. Perfect base material for hiking Mt. Fuji or any physical activity.
T-Shirt Color: These original Mt. Fuji T-Shirts comes in two simple base colors: 1. Navy Base with Light Gray Trim 2. Light Gray Base with Navy Trim
Mt. Fuji T-Shirts come in two basic colors (Light Gray and Navy)
FRONT Design: Front Logo – Red Mt. Fuji with white snow peak - underlined by FUJI Name: (Navy cloud for light gray T-Shirt and light gray cloud for navy T-Shirt)
Curious Note: RED FUJI or (AKA Fuji as it is called in Japanese) is a phenomenon that occurs when the peak of Mt. Fuji shines a bright red color during the summer sunrise or sunset. The RED FUJI wonder first became well-known when the Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) created the woodblock print series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji including RED FUJI (1832) named: “Fine Wind, Clear Morning” and the Great Wave off Kanagawa which are probably the two most recognized artworks of Japan and Mt. Fuji. (Picture of Katsushika Hokusai's RED FUJI Below)
Katsushika Hokusai's RED Fuji (1832) also called the “Fine Wind, Clear Morning”
FRONT Design continued: Front Vertical Japanese Kanji – 富士山 - 世界文化遺産 Meaning:Mt. Fuji - World Cultural Heritage
Curious Note: Many incorrectly assume Mt. Fuji is a natural world heritage site when in fact Japan's highest and most celebrated peak is designated a “Cultural World Heritage” (On June 22, 2013) rather than a natural World Heritage due to its cultural significance – Mt. Fuji is often selected the theme of paintings, poems and literature - Mt. Fuji is also a spiritual source of worship and has been so for centuries. To read up more on Mt. Fuji's World Heritage status follow this link to our official UNESCO Mt. Fuji's World Heritage page.
