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 words, contained in the slogan “What Fuji is to mountains, PILOT is to fountain pens, encapsulated the Pilot’s company founder’s wish for PILOT to be recognized worldwide as a fountain pen manufactured in the same way that Mount Fuji is known as one of the world’s famous mountains. Thinking nostalgically about the kinds of aspirations we had at the time of the original company’s foundation, we adopted a Mt Fuji motif for the fountain pens.
