At 3,776 meters (12,389 feet), it's only natural that Mount Fuji (aka Fuji-san) eclipses anything around it. But as most Japanese know, the surrounding area is also spectacularly beautiful and particularly the northern part, which if known as the Fujigoko, or Fuji Five lakes. If you aren't familiar with this area, that alone is enough reason to get yourself the Yamatsumi Mount Fuji and Five Lakes Realistic Papercraft Model: a 3D paper replica of the mountain and the five lakes, all made of cardboard pieces perforated and ready to be stacked one upon the other.
To help you make the model accurately, the kit comes with three wooden rods and all pieces have arrows so you know what goes where. When you are done stacking, just take out the rods, add the final small pieces on top, and then you have a picture-perfect, 1/150,000-scale diorama of Japan's most famous landscape, snow-covered top and all. If you've always wanted a view of Fuji, the Yamatsumi Mount Fuji and Five Lakes Realistic Papercraft Model offers it in a unique (and fun!) way.
